DESCRIPTION

Detail of one of two Poenae (Retaliations) from a painting depicting the retribution of the witch Medea. In the larger scene the children of Jason and Medea lie dead upon an altar, princess Glauce burns in the palace, and Medea flees upon a flying chariot (see other images). The Poena appears as a winged, hook-nosed daemon who observes the scene from a stony hill or billowing clouds.
