Old seer and Two Spectators
The image shows the statues of an old seer and two spectators watching the chariot race that was about to begin between Oenomaos and Pelops. Oenomaos was the king of Pisa and Pelops was a suitor of Hippodameia, the daughter of Oenomaos.
These statues were part of the east pediment of Temple of Zeus, which is situated in the Sanctuary of Olympia, Greece. They were restored from the fragments excavated near the Temple of Zeus, and are on display at the Olympia Archaeological Museum.
