Kuivalainen comments –
“A fully covered Bacchus is the personification of the vine. The volcano has generally been identified as Vesuvius as it was before the eruption of 79AD, making this picture a local landscape; the owner of the house may have had vineyards on the slopes of the mountain. Or else it depicts Mount Nysa, where Bacchus was raised…………”
