image[edit]

The image that's on this page might not belong. It's a detail from Raphael's The Parnassus and was brought in from its use on other Wikipedias. According to Paul F. Watson, "On a Window in Parnassus", Artibus et Historiae 8 (1987) 127–148, at 137 n. 27, a different figure, the young man writing down whatever Homer's singing, is Ennius: "The usual designation nowadays is Ennius: see Dussler, op. cit., p. 74 with further references." I'm not an art historian, but I think the identification should probably be bolstered by a citation. The site from which the image was originally copied even seems to agree with Watson's footnote.

I'm going to remove this now: the image is used as "Ennius" on several Wikipedias, but that isn't suitable justification for using it here. The Cardiff Chestnut (talk) 17:53, 7 August 2011 (UTC)
