    About

    A wall painting of Bacchus (the god of wine and being merry in ancient Roman mythology) at the foot of Mount Vesuvius, the volcano that loomed over the ancient towns of Pompeii and Herculaneum. Bacchus, one of the most celebrated gods in Pompeii and Herculaneum, was strongly linked to Vesuvius. Here he is shown covered with grapes, representing his status as the god of wine. Below him coils a bearded serpent - the “good god” agathodemone. The painting is from the lararium (shrine) of the House of the Centenary in Pompeii, and dates to the the first century AD. The prominence of Bacchus in the lararium might, perhaps, indicate that the household had commercial links with the wine trade.
