The most recognisable and influential image of an equestrian subject in the Greek world was that of Alexander the Great astride his horse Bucephalus. Later equestrian statues of Roman emperors and victorious generals all took Alexander as their model and images of Romano-Celtic rider-gods, possibly associated with the Roman god of war Mars, use similar iconography as seen on equestrian statues of emperors. There are a number of such rider statuettes from Roman Britain, presumably votive offerings to a deity.
