Stabiae, Villa Arianna, found 16th June 1759. Room W.28, two paintings of women.
According to Grasso, these came from the room numbered 28 on Weber’s plan.
On the right a woman lifts the hem of her cloak to display a peplum finely embroidered in gold with naked figures in different poses.
On the left a young woman holds a 5 string lyre. 
She wears a crown of ivy, a long tunic that falls from the shoulder across to the hip and sandals laced up to the ankles. 
The drapery of the garments is tastefully archaic.
Now in Naples Archaeological Museum. Inventory number 8840.
