Greek Fresco on the inside of Tomb of the Diver [La Tomba del Truffatore] from the Greek city of Poseidonia which became Roman Paestum. This panel is from one of the long sides of the tomb and shows a symposium of men lying on couches facing low tables. The men on the couches are playing the song of Eros the liar and the flute to distract the deceased from worldly thoughts so he can enter the next world. The tomb is painted with the true fresco technique and its importance lies in being "the only example of Greek painting with figured scenes dating from the Orientalizing, Archaic, or Classical periods to survive in its entirety. Paestrum, Andriuolo. (480-470 BC ) .
