Auriga, the Charioteer, is believed to have originated with the Babylonians. Auriga may once have had a chariot, but he is most commonly found holding a goat and two children. In his other hand are reins to the missing Chariot. Not much else is known about him; almost every culture includes him, but none agree as to who he was.
The Greeks and the Babylonians depict him as the lame son of Vulcan and Minvera, Erichthonius, who is said to have invented the four horse chariot.
