Slip that through your axle brackets on the underside of the chariot and do the same for the opposite side wheel.
It is just possible that the outriders are referees ratherthan competitors. But I think the prominence the mounted figures are given incircus scenes argues against this interpretation. Consider the vignette on the Campanaplaque, where the rider in charioteer’s garb is galloping dramatically out ofview. You could argue that he is a referee wearing standard safety gear, but itseems most unlikely that an artist would conceive this startling three-dimensionaleffect just to show the back of an ump. A similar conclusion can be reached from thefunerary relief shown below, which puts the rider among the key iconographic elements ofthe circus: team, , victorious charioteer with palm frond, starting-gates, turning-posts,lap-counters, and monuments on the central barrier.

There are always fewer riders than chariots, except on somesarcophagi where each chariot has an accompanying rider for compositionalreasons. If the riders belonged to the factions, probably there were four ofthem in all.

The Chariot in Egyptian Warfare, its history, design, and use

The few writers who have taken note of these images have suggested that the tool, if that’s what it is, was used in track maintenance. It seems unlikely, however, that a tool used for routine upkeep of the track would be included in a scene of thrilling action. If the object is indeed an ax of some kind, it might instead be a piece of rescue gear, used to cut free an entangled charioteer, to separate the chariot from the team so that the track could be cleared, and to dispatch injured horses.

Campana plaque at the Louvre; a damaged specimen is also held by the British Museum (Humphrey fig. 80).
