The Fall of Troy
Represented on the large metope of the neck is the Wooden Horse - the wheels on which the large construction was moved can be seen. Visible inside the square openings in its belly are the heads of the warriors, unmistakable, holding their spears and shields in front. Some warriors already stand on the wall of Troy, which is denoted by a relief horizontal line.
