Banquet scene


Banquet scene
This object in terracotta, of which the provenance is not known, represents a banquet scene. One notices a man, lying on his back, the head reclined on a cushion. In his left hand, he holds a jug; his right hand is stretched out behind the woman who is seated at the feet of the bed and who bangs a drum. The piece, which bears many traces of wear, dates from the Roman Period.
