A soldier stands "at ease" wearing a long blue mantle and holding a spear and a tall red oval shield seen in profile. Extensive remains of the black preparation drawing are visible in areas of the drapery and shield. The frontal, public posture of this figure resembles civic honorific statuary of the period.
