The procession on the north side moves from right to left. This is the best preserved section of the frieze.
All the horses are shown in profile. Some are proceeding calmly…
…some are running.
Most of the riders look straight ahead.
On the north side sixty riders are shown, divided into ten groups, each comprising a different number of horsemen. The first rider of each group is considered to be the one whose horse is shown complete.
In the first group, the leading rider is thought to be the rider on the right of block XLVII.
On the south side the procession moves from left to right. Evident is the division of the horsemen into ten groups of six each, distinguished by the difference in their dress.
