Z38.4 CENTAUR BATTLING TIGER
|Museum Collection||Altes Museum, Berlin|
|Context||Hadrian's Villa near Tivoli|
|Date||ca 118 - 138 A.D.|
A Centaur casts a large rock at the tiger which has slain his mate and child. The Centaurid (female Centaur) lies dead beneath the beast's claws and the infant lies by its tail. Two other big cats complete the scene--a dead lion on the far right and a white leopard on the rocks in the background.
