Below is an interesting piece : a sculpted comb bone, found in Oria around 50 BC, showing Achille pulling Hector's body behind him. It is located in the National archeology Museum of Tarente.
At the end of the 16th century, the French engraver Etienne Delaune did the drawing below, called 'Les Petits Combats : Fight between Achille & Hector'. It can be seen in Strasbourg (France) at the 'Cabinet des Estampes et Dessins'.
During the 18th century, the French painter Hubert ROBERT did 2 very similar paintings about Alexander the Great standing in front of Achille's tomb. The first one is kept in Versailles, at the Lambinet Museum...
... while this one is located in Paris at the Louvre Museum.
The next post will be about some contemporary art pieces about Achille & Patrocle, in both sculptures and other media.
