(Pompei, Casa dei Vettii (VI, 15, 1, p))

Description:
The love-sick Pasiphae, seated with her legs crossed on an armchair, looks languidly at the wooden cow as Daedalus, his skin quite, nearly bald and with a short beard, talks to her. Daedalus holds the rectangular cover of the hole made in the cow’s back in his right hand. She has two female attendants. At Pasiphae’s left should is her aged nurse, her head veiled.
