Sepulcre painting of a horseman in hunting livery – Achilles.

This painting is reproduced from an Etruscan tomb at Tarquinia in central Italy known as the tomb of the bulls because of other elements within the mural. The subject matter is taken directly from Greek mythology and represents the hero Achilles as he lays in ambush of the prince Troilus who is riding his horse near a well at the walls of Troy.
An etruscan horseman, possibly an allusion to Achilles.
