Banquet scene

Banquet scene
This fragment from a wall painting depicts part of a banqueting scene. From right to left, two men and a woman are seated on chairs. The person in the middle appears to be sick: he turns away to vomit; this theme is part of the rich iconography of a number of Theban tombs. At the top of the fragment there are several red lines which were meant to outline the inscriptions that were never added to the wall.
