See Sogliano, A., 1879. Le pitture murali campane scoverte negli anni 1867-79. Napoli: Giannini, (p.120, no.595).
Kuivalainen describes –
“A composition of three figures on a white background. …………..”
Kuivalainen comments –
“The indoors scene depicts a lascivious maenad and a lethargic Bacchus with a disapproving Silenus. The scene is a variation of F20 above, now with the opposite roles and an active maenad instead of a passive Ariadne.”
