Perseus and Andromeda, fresco from the House of the Dioscuri in Pompeii. The House of the Dioscuri was not excavated until 1828/29, so despite the similarities, Anton Raphael Mengs had not seen it when he painted his Perseus Frees Andromeda.
This painting is from the burials at Tarquinia where a large number of Etruscan frescoed tombs have been found and opened to the public. The ancient Etruscans are known for having passed on to the ancient Romans the concept and love of gladiatorial combat, boxing and wrestling as entertainment
