Sotheby's provide a history of the horse and do acknowledge the link with Symes:
- Münzen und Medaillen AG, Basel, May 6, 1967, lot 2
- Robin Symes, London, very probably acquired at the above auction
- Howard and Saretta Barnet, New York, acquired from the above on November 16, 1973
When did the horse leave Greece? Who consigned it to the sale in Basel? Did the Barnets acquire other material from Symes?
