Depictions of Hercules holding the strangled lion by a hind-leg are comparatively rare. The type is known from Roman sarcophagi that illustrate the Hercules cycle, and there is a free-standing version in the Vatican. For the sarcophagi see nos. 1716-1718, 1721, 1724 and 1736, and for the Vatican sculpture see no. 1977 in A. Hermary, "Herakles," in LIMC, vol. V.
