IX.9.d Pompeii. March 2009. Room l, east wall of triclinium/oecus.  In the central panel of the east wall was a painting of Andromeda being freed by Perseus. The painting was so badly damaged that only part of Andromeda was visible, and nothing remained of Perseus other than his contour. The whole composition was a copy of others which have been found in a much better state. On the right, it would seem was the wounded monster.
Average height of the figures was 0.41m.

The poor conservation of the painting made it impossible to distinguish more, but the subject was thought to be similar to three others found at Pompeii.
