20th Century 'Death of Aigistho' Relief in Plaster from Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

1,200.00

A weathered relief in plaster. The frieze depicts the death of Aigistho.

According to the myths, Aigisthos killed Agamemnon whilst being his wife Clytemnestra’s lover, but was killed himself in revenge by Orestes, son of Clytemnestra and Agamemnon.

To the rear of the panel is a small copper badge stating 'Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Kobenhavn, Eneret'.

The original is held within the museum's collection, and was found at the end of the 19th century, in the precinct of Diana at Lake Nemi in Ariccia outside Rome.

It's believed that the original found was a Roman copy taken directly from an Archaic Greek piece rather than a stylised interpretation.
