Category:Phryne revealed before the Areopagus
English: Phryne revealed before the Areopagus (Phryne devant l'areopage) is an 1861 painting by Jean-Léon Gérôme, showing Phryne, a famous hetaera (courtesan) of Ancient Greece, being disrobed before the Areopagus. Phryne was on trial for profaning the Eleusinian Mysteries, and is said to have been disrobed by Hypereides, who was defending her, when it appeared the verdict would be unfavourable. The sight of her nude body apparently so moved the judges that they acquitted her. Some authorities claim that this story is a later invention.
