Painting removed from a wall of a room, possibly a triclinium or dining room, in a house in Pompeii in 1749. It shows a bacchant dancer striking a tympanum or tambourine with her hand. She wears a necklace and bracelets, and a fine robe in white lined with red, the colour of Bacchus. Copperplate engraved by Tommaso Piroli from his own "Antichita di Ercolano" (Antiquities of Herculaneum), Rome, 1789. Italian artist and engraver Piroli (1752-1824) published six volumes between 1789 and 1807 documenting the murals and bronzes found in Heraculaneum and Pompeii.
