greek-museums:

Archaeological Museum of Delphi:

Ivory statuette dubbed as “Master of the beasts”. It depicts probably a god or a hero, possibly Apollo, taming a wild animal. The statuette decorated a piece of furniture, or a wooden utensil. It has strong eastern influences and it possibly comes from a workshop in Asia Minor, but is the work of a greek artisan as indicated by the meander on the base. (7th century B.C)

Detail showing the oldest known depiction of the Trojan Horse. (Note the warriors peeking out through portholes in the horse’s side.)
The Mykonos vase, a pithos, is the earliest dated object (Archaic period, ca. 670 BC) which depicts the Trojan Horse during the Trojan War. It was found in 1961 on Mykonos in Greece, for which it is named, by a local islander.
