Pferdekopf von Waldgirmes (German), the horse's head of Waldgirmes, is the remnant of a Roman-age statue. It was found in the year 2009 on a field close to Waldgirmes in the German state of Hesse. The head was buried 11 metres below the ground in a collapsed well shaft, hidden in a barrel, and had been found in the course of archeological excavation works of a former Roman settlement. Therefore most likely it belonged to an equestrian statue that stood on the forum of this settlement. Since August 19, 2018, the horse's head is presented in the Saalburgmuseum.

  • Der Pferdekopf von Waldgirmes ist ein archäologischer Fund, der 2009 auf einem Feld bei Lahnau-Waldgirmes in Mittelhessen geborgen wurde. Vermutlich gehörte der Kopf zu einem Reiterstandbild, das auf dem Forum der dortigen römischen Siedlung stand. Wegen eines Rechtsstreits zwischen dem Land Hessen und dem Eigentümer des Fundortes um den Wert des Objektes wurde das restaurierte Objekt erst am 19. August 2018 im Saalburgmuseum öffentlich ausgestellt.

It was found in the year 2009 on a field close to Waldgirmes in the German state of Hesse. The head was buried 11 metres below the ground in a collapsed well shaft, hidden in a barrel, and had been found in the course of archeological excavation works of a former Roman settlement. Therefore most likely it belonged to an equestrian statue that stood on the forum of this settlement. The piece is 59 cm long, weighs about 15 kg, and has been carefully restored. It is considered to be one of the most important archeological finds in Germany. For years, the state of Hesse and the landowner hassled about the compensation the owner was entitled to, until the district court of Limburg set it at 773.000 Euros. Since August 19, 2018, the horse's head is presented in the Saalburgmuseum.
