English: Fresco on a wall of a tomb in the Catacombs of San Gennaro at Naples in Italy. The dead, probably members of a family, are standing with their arms raised, praying. On the left side a woman Hilaritas wrapped up in a plain gown. To the right a man with a short black beard Teotecnus wearing a tunika with a light klamis over it, which is decorated with jumping antelopes. Between them a girl Nonnosa with a red dress and a belt around her breasts decorated with a precious brooch, pearl necklaces hanging over her dress and more pearls covering her neck, her sleeves and her headgear. Over her head, a crown, the symbol of victory. On the left and on the right side there are standing two candles.
