|There is little
Roman art on this theme (although one of the best finds is this Roman
sarcophagus dated to the 2nd century AD which possibly show Tereus running
from the banquet table, on which can be seen the remains of his terrible
meal, and chasing the women with a bone in his hand) LIMC 16 - Budapest, Mus.

|Ah, the irony. This
scene of the apres-child-feast is carved into a sarcophagus (“flesh-eater”).
