The author of this paper gives new interpretations of two Greek equestrian termini, pedē and gnōmones , based on the relevant passages of Xenophon’s Peri hippikēs and arguments taken from modern hippological practice. Contrary to prevailing opinions, pedē must mean riding figures in general, and gnōmōn refers to the disappearance of the cup from permanent teeth.
