Leicester Square Horses

For the record – to note for posterity a private thing between my late partner and myself – the four beautiful big bronze horses in the fountain at Leicester Square are called, from left to right:

  • Bucephalus
  • Nero
  • Callisto
  • Florian

Doubtless other people have named them differently, but these were our names.  Every time I saw them with John I would test his memory and he would generally get them right.  Sometimes we would dispute which was Callisto and which was Florian.

May they draw his chariot through the heavens!
