Herculaneum Ercolano

These prints show frescoes and archeologicl treasures found in the ruins of Herculaneum. Herculaneum was totally buried in superheated pyroclastic ash and lava during the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79AD. The town was forgotten until 1710 when the first remains were found. In 1738 Carl von Bourbon, the king of Naples, started a systematic excavation of the area which has continued until the present day. Much of the area cannot be excavated because it lies under the modern town of Ercolano.

Prints are in good condition unless otherwise mentioned.

The Antiquities
of
Herculaneum
Translated from the Italian
by Thomas Martyn and John Lettice
Bachelors of Divinity, and Fellows of Sidney College, Cambridge

London, 1773.

For anyone who enjoys decorating a home or an office with antique prints this is an opportunity to acquire some of the fine examples of early Roman samples of wall frescoes as they were found in Herculaneum. We are allowed to take a glimpse at the high standard of their life-style, which, in turn, may give us an idea of how make use of the classic values for ourselves to our own joy and to the enlightment of our guests.

Page size: ca. 30.5 x 22.5 cm ( 12 x 8.9 ")

Image size given below. All prints are in Very Good Condition with light toning unless otherwise mentioned.

Pl. 1: Out of the four Monochromi upon marble, most perfect in their kind, and inenstimable for their singularity. The ladies here represented: Latona, Niobe, Phoebe, Ileaira and Aglaia. Here we have the rare possibilty to even tell the artist, Alexander of Athens, and thus can date the painting at least roughly from the form of the Greek characters to some time before the Christian Era

Image has light foxing and one small thin spot (the size of an "o").

Pl.II. Youth assaulting a centaur as it lays violent hands on a terrified nymph, possibly referring to the war between the Lapithae with the Centaurs. Then the young lady would be Hippodamia the wife of Pirithous on whom a rape was attempted by Eurytus, the centaur who was punished with death

Pl. III. This picture has sustained much detriment from the passing time that its outlines are scarcely visible. The old man is holding a boy or a girl between his knees. The nymph bending over the pair and the stately lady holding the bridle of her horse are also related in one way or another to the child. We may conclude various possibilities of depiction: The education of Achilles, the concealment of Neptune or the clandistine parturition of Ceres.

One tiny spot as big as an "o" in the image.

Pl. V. This plate shows the famous achievement of Theseus
in Crete. The Athenian youths and virgins appear to be
coming out of the entrance to the labyrinth. The Minotaur
lies at the feet of the conqueror. The goddess who sits above
and holds in her hand bow and arrow may be assumed to be
Theseus' protectress.

Pl. VI. This picture is the companion of the preceding. The child
who is suckled by the hind may be Telephus. The other figures in
this picture seem to bear a relation to him. His father Hercules,
adorned with his most remarkable attributes (bow and arrow, club
and lion's skin) attentively surveys him while a youg nymph,
distinguished by wings, some ears of corn and a crown of olive,
points at him with her finger. A majestic lady adorned crowned
with flowers, a basket of fruit at her side and a rustic staff in her
left hand uggests to be the protective deity of the exposed infant.
The young Faunus or Pan may be meant to particularize her. The
eagle and the tame lion were probably meant to render the design
more clear make it in fact more obscure.

Pl. XI. Much guessing on the meaning of this picture has been made by scholars. The most likely among the many and differring
conjectures: The discovery of Orestes as described by Euripides in his tragedy "Iphigenia in Tauris". In the youth on the far right
sitting in a pensive and melancholic posture we recognize Orestes, the lady embracing him being his sister Iphigenia. The youth
opposite the two would then represent Pylades who discovers to Iphigenia her brother to whom he was to deliver her letter. In the
background we see a deity who seems to be placed in a niche of a temple who is most likely to be Diana.
