Bronze in the shape of a horse.
Roberti states the proper name Il cavaletto (cp. Roberti 1950: 181); Vetter mentions Pferdchen (cp. Vetter 1954: 71) and Pellegrini indicates the name given by Roberti as well as Pferdchen B (cp. Pellegrini 1951: 312). The latter in according to Mayr (cp. Mayr 1951: 32 (No. VIII), fig. VIII).
Almost the entire group of bronzes from Sanzeno was discovered between 1947 and 1949. The bronzes were found by chance in a sand pit (cp. Pellegrini 1951: 304; Vetter 1954: 66-67).
