Depictions of female centaurs are extremely rare in antiquity. The 2nd century A.D. writer Lucian of Samosata, in his Zeuxis or Antiochus (3-7), describes a painting by the 5th century B.C. painter Zeuxis of a female centaur, renowned for its novelty and innovative composition. A mosaic, perhaps based on this painting, was found at Hadrian's Villa at Tivoli and is now in Berlin (see no. 77 in Ramage and Ramage, Roman Art: Romulus to Constantine).
