Petasos and horsemen

 Salvete Omnes.

 summer weekend  - and more ancient Thessalian horseman hat aka petasos imagery

 from the famous book  Art of Horsemanship by ancient horseman Xenophon of Athens come these  beautiful images of ancient  Athenian cavalrymen wearing petasos- a Thessalian hat. This American edition of Xenophon's work was translated by Morris H. Morgan, PhD, and published in Boston, MA, 1893AD.  Available on Archive to read, download and peruse.

I 'separated' these horsemen a bit for clarity sake, so if you want to use them as they are now, for your pleasure or whatever, do feel free to use it, as I used the original image from the book
