Abstract

This short paper deals with the iconographic theme of the horses facing a manger or a tripod, as it has been recently reconsidered regarding to its diffusion in Greece and in Magna Graecia between the 8th and 7th century BC. In Etruria this subject appears almost at the same time on the local pottery and is represented till the mid-7th century BC. Starting from the analysis of the Ludwig krater, one of the most relevant artefacts, this contribution provides some remarks on the possible meaning of this iconography in the central Tyrrhenian Italy during the Orientalizing period.
