Punishment of Dirce by brothers Amphion and Zethus depicted in the Roman fresco from the House of the Grand Duke (Casa del Granduca di Toscana) in Pompeii (1-79 AD), now on display in the National Archaeological Museum (Museo Archeologico Nazionale di Napoli) in Naples, Campania, Italy. Dirce is tied to the bull by Amphion, with the permission of his brother Zethus, to punish her for the mistreatment she inflicted on their mother Antiope. Antiope looks on with compassion and seems to want to stop the hand of their son.
