Sale of Bread Fresco, Pompeii

The so-called "Sale of Bread" fresco from the House of the Baker or Casa del Forno (c. 79 CE) in Pompeii, Italy. The fresco is misleadingly titled because it actually depicts the distribution of bread by a political candidate or politician, rather than the sale of bread by a baker or vendor.
