I.8.17 Pompeii. December 2007. Room 16. North wall to the west of the door.  Remains of a wall painting of Ariadne, Athena and Theseus?
See Bragantini, de Vos, Badoni, 1981. Pitture e Pavimenti di Pompei, Parte 1. Rome: ICCD. (p.87). According to Peters, from the right upper corner a large portion of the stucco is missing. Ariadne was sleeping, on the right. Theseus was standing near her, but looking left towards Athena. The yellow of Ariadne’s pillow and the carmine, yellow and green of the clothes form a vivid contrast to the sober surroundings.
