Il s'agit de deux personnages détachés du groupe “Mathô vaincu, Défilé de la Hâche ou Retour de Mathô à Carthage ou L'Eléphant d'Hamilcar” dont la maquette en plâtre de 1893, aujourd'hui détruite, figura au Salon des Artistes Français de 1894, n°3536, et pour laquelle l'artiste obtint une médaille de 3ème classe. La place de cette sculpture dans le groupe se situe à droite de la patte arrière droite de l'éléphant.
