This is thought to have decorated the balustrade of the podium of the amphitheatre in Mérida. The work represents an very common image in the amphitheatre: a hunter attacked by a wild cat. When it was discovered it was being used on a tomb outside the amphitheatre, and was concealed by the stone slab, which accounts for the painting’s good state of conservation.
