Terracotta Campana relief showing a chariot-race. A four-horsed chariot approaches the three columns of the turning-post. The charioteer wears a cap, leggings, and a short tunic with fasciae (protective leather straps). The reins are passed tightly around his waist. A jubilator, a rider who encourages the contestants, has already turned. A charioteer, fallen from his chariot, crouches at the base of the turning-post.
