Parian War Figure of Lydian Queen Omphale

Stock No.16499

A large Parian ware figure of Omphale after a model by Antonio Canova. The Lydian Queen is depicted seated on a throne in the antique style, with a lion's pelt on her head as she leans against Heracles' club.

French, mid-19th century.

Notes: In Greek mythology, Omphale was the daughter of Jardanos and Queen of Lydia after her marriage to Tmolos, an early Lydian king. After his death, she continued to rule alone. She bought Heracles out of slavery and he served her for three years, and she bore him a son, Lamos.
