The theme of the southern frieze of the temple of Athena Nike is probably the victorious battle of the Greeks against the Persians at Marathon in 490 BC, in which the Athenians took the lead. On the south side, a Greek hoplite, on the left, helps one of his comrades, who collapses from being hit by the arrow of a Persian archer depicted on the right, at the other end of the stone. In the center, a Greek with a shield in his left hand chases a Persian horseman, while another Persian is lying on the ground dead.
