Trajan Column XVII (25) 62 detail- Decebalus conducting the first battle from his vantage point.   Among the most impressive scenes of the battle is the “Carrying of the injured Dacian youth”. The group around the wounded youth seems to be a product of  Hellenistic pattern books.  Such groups occur often on sarcophagi. The composition is in a pyramid form, with Decebalus being at the top of the pyramid.
