This horse is depicted in mid-gallop with deeply incised lines. It is outlined with careful attention to detail, and three small, curved lines on the upper body may indicate a rider, although this figure would have been carved very shallowly since no other traces remain. This horse is the rightmost in a group of three animals that includes another horse (graffito T14) and a bird (graffito T22).
