During the great age of colonisation (circa 750-550BC) Greek settlement spread to Asia Minor's northern and southern coasts. These settlements prospered along the great sea and caravan trade routes and it was during this period that the earliest Greek achievements in science, philosophy and architecture were produced.
Reliefs such as these four fragments were incorporated into the architecture of buildings and combined to create a fluid and rhythmic scene of horses and their athletic riders.
