This is the Signed original Watercolour painting by James E McConnell.

The Great Greek Writers: Lucian -- sharp-tongued king of satire. In the scene depicted the captain of the ship argues with two men sent to kill Lucian who had many enemies due to the acerbic nature of his wit.

He lived in the Second Century A.D. and travelled widely around the Mediterranean civilizations dispensing wit and wisdom to folks gathered in market places and the like. He is said to have enraged a King Alexander of Greece by biting the thumb of a local prophet thus the killers sent in his wake. He survived and died years later, probably of gout.

Original artwork from Look and Learn no. 113 (14 March 1964).
