This wall painting, called The Judgment of Solomon and residing in the Naples Museum, comes from Pompeii, Italy, which was covered by volcanic ash in 79 AD.  It comes from the "House of the Physician."  It is thought to portray the wisdom and judgment of Solomon (1 Kings 3) where two women both lay claim to a baby.  Sitting on the raised platform is King Solomon, the composer of the Book of Proverbs.  Photo credit:  Amphipolis, Wikimedia Commons.

The two figures on the left are thought to be Socrates and Aristotle, in rather comic form!
