The Galloping Horse

One day like any other day, I went wandering around with my CTX 3030 on a spot (very much hunted area) which already have given me quite a lot of money and objects of all ages. This location is heavily polluted because of the sludge coming from the river.

After several hours of hunting, my find pouch was filling up although this location was really hunted out by other detectorist. Suddenly, I heard a nice sound. I knew it was bronze, 10cm to 20cm deep, and it appeared wonderful, ready to pounce in my hand after waiting for me more than 2000 years.
