I refer you to the learned author I linked to in my previous post;
"In Psalm 91 vv5-6 the incoming arrow is one of the symbols of pestilence.
"You will not fear the terror of the night,
Nor the arrow that flies by day,
Nor the pestilence that stalks in darkness
Nor the destruction that wastes at noonday"
We get the same image at the beginning of Homer's Iliad, where the flying arrows of the angry god Apollo are wreaking havoc in the Greek camp.
This seems to be an association of ideas which the ancient world would have recognised."
And this is one of my reasons for re-affirming the traditional identification of this horseman with "Plague".
"As I said before".
