Caption: Battle wounds of Aeneas, Roman fresco. Aeneas (centre) has been wounded in battle. He leans upon his spear and rests his left hand on the shoulder of his little son Ascanius, who weeps bitterly. The doctor Japix (lower left) attempts to remove the arrowhead in Aeneas' thigh with forceps or a scalpel. Aphrodite (Venus, upper left) approaches with a bunch of medicinal herbs from Mount Ida in Crete. This scene was described by Virgil in the Aeneid. This fresco, from Pompeii, is displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy.
