: cast

: The plaster cast of a panel, details of the bottom left hand corner are missing (presumably from antiquity); from right to left: Lapith with shield and helmeted, half fallen, is being resoundingly thumped by centaur. Latter faces right and has hold of lapith's head as well as kicking him in the armpit with his left foreleg. Centaur also appears to be holding a woman to his right, as his tail seems to be wrapped around her; also he may be holding her with his right arm (which is missing). Upper part of a figure facing left remains in top left hand corner. Fourth panel from the right of the west side frieze (battle between the Centaurs and the Lapiths).

This object is in store, please contact the Museum to arrange to see the object.
