This lecture will explore the intense portrayal of a lion assaulting its prey on the Roman sarcophagus now on view at the Tampa Museum of Art, tracing its ancestry back to a celebrated lion and horse group in the Capitoline Museum (Rome) and through a long tradition of feline combats in ancient Greek and Roman art.
