    What are the full details of this painting – do you know who it’s by, for example?


    • Arkady,

      I believe (am 99.9% certain) it is by a Victorian artist named Walter Crane. The scene it shows can be found in Arrian VII.26. Unfortunately, I don’t know which book the picture might have appeared in. If I find out, I will mention it on the blog. I hope that is useful to you; any further Qs, just let me know.
