V.4.6/7 Pompeii. Painting of Maenad with Bacchus. The background was red. 
On the right was Bacchus, but his head was missing from the painting. 
He poured the liquid from a jug into the mouth of his panther.
On the left we see a standing Maenad, crowned with ivy and dressed in green robe.
In her right hand she held a tambourine and a wand in her left.
See Notizie degli Scavi di AntichitÓ, 1899, p. 345, fig 6.

According to Kuivalainen, two persons are standing against a red background. 
On the left, a female figure in a green robe holds a tympanum in her right hand and a thyrsus in the left; she has a wreath of ivy on her head. 
In the middle sits a panther drinking from a cantharus held by the youth on the right. 
The youth stands with his weight on his right foot and leans with his left on a pillar; he carries a yellow cloak on his arm and holds a thyrsus. 
He comments: A Bacchus of the young and almost naked type, depicted with a maenad and a panther. Simple two-figure compositions with Dionysus and one of his companions were favoured already e.g. by the Python Painter in Paestan vases ca. 360ľ320 BC.
