FRANKFURT – Scientists say a Roman horse head made from bronze and plated in gold has been discovered at an archaeological site in Germany.

Hesse state archaeologist Egon Schallmeyer says the head is part of a horse and rider statue and “qualitatively one of the best (pieces) created at that time.”

The ornamented, well preserved head was found earlier this month at the Waldgirmes excavation site in central Germany and displayed Thursday at the German Archaeological Institute in Frankfurt.
