The horse that adorns the right side of the pediment belongs either to Selene the Moon or Nyx the Night and he has run his course as day breaks. Exhausted, with bulging eyes, flaring nostrils and open mouthed. This image has been digitally modified to remove the information plaque on the marble base.
