Youthful charioteer, holding a goad in his right hand and the reins with both, bent forward driving a racing quadriga to the left, just passing the turning post that can be seen behind him, above, Nike flying to the right, holding a wreath in her right hand, and a tablet inscribed ΕΥΑΙΝ in her left.
