A worksheet designed to expand on the depiction of the 13 famous women from antiquity depicted in Frederick Wallen's painting.
It features Wallen's painting and a matching column of 20 clues to the following famous personages:
Miriam, Rebecca, Semiramis, Penelope, Sappho, Cleopatra,
Cornelia, Phryne, Aspasia, Helen, Atalanta, Imogen, and Boadicea.
Also included is a prompt for students to examine the iconography of the painting.
Includes a key with the answers to the matching column and an explanation of the symbols in the painting.
A fun worksheet, homework, discussion prompt, or miniature research assignment.
N.B. This sheet is designed as an accompaniment to Ecce Romani's Myth V, which prints an image of the painting with the names truncated. Teachers may wish to consider the appropriateness of discussing figures such as Phryne and Aspasia with their class.
