Sacrifice of Iphigenia

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

“The cut represents a painting from a wall at Pompeii, the subject of which is the sacrifice of Iphigenia, and which probably was copied in some degree from the famous painting of Timanthes. Calchas stands near the altar, holding the sacrificial knife; Diomede and Ulysses have Iphigenia in their grasp, and are about to place her on the altar; Agamemnon turns away his head enveloped in the folds of his mantle, while Diana is seen in the air, causing a nymph to bring her the hind that is to be substituted for the maiden.” — Anthon, 1891


Charles Anthon Aenid of Virgil (New York: Harper & Brothers Publishers, 1891) 383
