Commentary


Mêmes coin de droit que l’exemplaire de la collection BCD. Lanz 105, n° 81 var. (A/ 324). Le coin de droit est caractéristique avec le nez du cheval allongé. Même coin de revers que l’exemplaire du Fitzwilliam Museum de Cambridge, collection Mc Clean, n° 6162 (R/ 456). Nous sommes en présence d’une nouvelle liaison de coin à l’intérieur d’une série déjà connue.
