Horse grazing r., behind shepherd bent stg. r., holding pedum; to left tree

rare, F+, brown patina

The depiction refers to an old, unknown founder myth of Alexandreia: The horse seems to have found a plant where the city was to be built. Here you can see how the shepherd observes the horse so that nothing escapes him.
