Lucanian Tomb Fresco (350-320 BC)

Walls of a tomb chamber from the Lucanian period (specifically about 330-320 BC). Part of over 200 tombs with rare frescoes that were found in the late 1960s in Paestum. This panel is from Tomb 86 in area Andriuolo and depicts a winged woman (Hera?) driving a chariot.
