VIII.5.15 Pompeii. March 2009. Room 2, detail of wall painting on west wall. According to NdS, on the west wall of this area was a representation (width 1.08, height 1.65) of the well-known subject of Hercules and Nessus. On the left stood the hero, naked with his back to the viewer, carrying his lion-skin on his left shoulder, armed with a quiver and holding the club in his right hand. He was watching the centaur, prostrate before him, reaching out with his arms or taking the baby from the arms of Dejanira, who was seen veiled in the chariot in the background. Two white horses were attached to the chariot. The conservation of it was not good, mainly in the figures of Dejanira and the child, which were faded.
