Roman Hunter with Lioness Painting Download Full Size Image

A venatio scene with a hunter attacking a lioness. The painting once adorned the balustrade of the podium of the Roman amphitheatre of Augusta Emerita in the late 1st century CE. It was found reused in a tomb outside the amphitheatre, which accounts for the painting’s good state of conservation.
