Many of the things we could list as "images, nicknames, or things" associated with Epicurus deserve a thread of their own, but we can start with a list or table and then branch off as needed. Here's an effort for a start. Please suggest others and I will add them to the list. One purpose of this list will be to help in development of graphics and other "creative" presentations.
|Image on the Boscoreale Cup||Boscoreale||Epicurus with three-legged tripod and piglet at his feet, with Zeno the Stoic pointing at him accusingly|
|Figs / Fig Tree||Lucian of Samosata "Alexander the Oracle Monger"||Lucian says that Alexander ordered Epicurus' writings to be burned on a fire made of fig trees, (see post from Don below)|
|Pigs / Piglets / Hogs||Herculaneum||Pigs / Piglets are associated with Epicurus as shown on the Boscoreale cup and references by Horace|
|The Gargettian||Cicero||Reference to the area of Athens from which Epicurus' family came.|
