West Pediment of the Temple of Zeus at Olympia , early 5 th cent. BC. Centauromachy: battle between the Lapiths and Centaurs at the wedding of Pirithous to Hippodamia (NOT the same as Pelops' wife) 1) Overview of the pediment. Note the central Apollo, and directly to his right the Athenian hero Theseus. 2) Detail: Theseus attacks a centaur, using a particular arm gesture (the "Harmodius blow") associated with the 6 th century "tyrannicide" Harmodius, who killed a son of Peisistratus, and was thus enshrined as a liberator in the Athenian popular imagination.
