The original Hellenistic bronze group, dating to the mid-late 2nd century BC, were recovered from a shipwreck in the sea at Cape Artemision (off the island of Euboea - modern Evia).
The horse was recovered in 1928 and the boy jockey in 1937. This famous piece is in the National Archaeological Museum in Athens.
It is among the very few surviving large-scale bronze sculptures from antiquity.
