VII.4.10 Pompeii. September 2005. Modern restoration, site of impluvium in atrium.

This house took its name from a life-size painting of a sitting Bacchus with a panther at his feet, which decorated the atrium. (Helbig 391)

In the exedra nearby were another three paintings, found August 1826 –

Venus and Adonis (Helbig 339), Cimon and Pero (Helbig 1376), and Hector, Andromache and Astyanax (Helbig 1314). 

A beautiful marble floor was transported to the museum on 22nd July 1828.

VII.4.10 Pompeii. 1824. Drawing of original painting of Pero (or Perona) and Cimon (or Micone). Pero is presenting her breast to her aged father Cimon, condemned to die of hunger in prison.  The Roman Charity (or Carità Romana) is the exemplary story of a daughter, Pero, who secretly breastfeeds her father, Cimon, after he is incarcerated and sentenced to death by starvation. She is found out by a jailer, but her act of selflessness impresses officials and wins her father's release. See Helbig, W., 1868. Wandgemälde der vom Vesuv verschütteten Städte Campaniens.
