Today's image is a dramatic scene from the downfall of Troy. The Trojan hero Aeneas has come back to his home in order to rescue his family and flee the city which has been overrun by their Greek enemies. Aeneas is carrying his aged father Anchises on his back with his young son Ascanius stumbling along beside him. His wife, Creusa, runs along just behind him - but Creusa will not survive their flight; he will lose her in the chaos and confusion and then be visited by her ghost. You can read all about that in Vergil's Aeneid, Book 2.
