Technically it's from the actual ruler of Rome, Marcus Aurelius. He ruled with his "co-emporer" Lucius Verus for a bit, then ruled alone after Verus gave him full control. He was the last of the five "good emporers."

Yay for taking Latin!

Gorgeous horse, btw.

It's also a VERY famous Roman statue that as been more or less a strong influence for later equestrian statues with their rulers. YAY art history : )

Cute horse, but such an odd victory pic. Is he backing up?
