Images in Roberti 1950: Tav. III,VIII (drawing) = Mayr 1951: 31 (VIII), Pellegrini 1951: no. 8 (photo) and 313 (8) (drawing), LIR (photo and drawing = IR).

Inscribed on the front of the bronze, along the horse's back, starting at the backside; length 3.8 cm. The characters are unambiguous. kaθiave is best interpreted as an individual name, probably that of the donor.
