When the temple of Zeus was still standing, in Olympia, characters from an interesting story adorned its east pediment.  One of those characters was Oinomaos (Oenomaus). 

With the original statue no longer available, we are left with a replica (made by casting) of what was once a key part of the adornment. 

Meet Oinomaos, the mythological expert charioteer and King of Pisa (an ancient Greek town), as he would have appeared in the temple's east pediment, c. 460 BC.
