On a Portrait of the Emperor Marcian

Texts

μορφὴν τήνδ᾽ ὁράᾳς ζωῷ ἐναλίγκιον ἵππῳ,
Μαρκιανὸν φορέοντι, βροτῶν βασιλῆα γενέθλης:
δεξιτερὴν δ᾽ ἐτάνυσσε, θέοντα δὲ πῶλον ἐπείγει
δυσμενέος καθύπερθεν, ὅτις κεφαλῇ μιν ἀείρει.

— Paton edition

Thou seest this shape, like a live horse, carrying
Marcian, ruler of the race of men. His right hand
is outstretched and he spurs on the galloping horse
above a foeman, who seems to support its weight on
his head.
