Image Index > Banquet Scenes > Married Man Admires Serving Boy


DESCRIPTION
The deceased man is depicted on a banqueting couch, enjoying food and drink. A naked serving boy brings him a pitcher of wine, while his wife sits on a chair behind him. The dead man's married status does not seem to conflict with his enjoyment of looking at a beautiful boy.
