The painting Drunken Silenus (1626) by the Spanish painter Jusepe de Ribera (1591-1652), owned by Gaspar Roomer in Antwerp, but now in the Museo di Capodimonte in Naples. The central figure is Silenus, lying on a cloth (in front of Castel Sant'Angelo) and offering a wine cup to the figure behind him. To the right is Pan, crowning Silenus with vines.
