She was left to the jurisdiction of her husband. Following the ancient custom, he held the trial, which was to determine his wife’s fate and reputation, before a family council, which declared her innocent. Pomponia was a woman destined for a long life and continuous grief.

For all Freud’s engagement with classical Greece, he was also committed to a pursuit of the pre-history to which archaeology gave access, and to a universalizing account of human development. The Gradiva frieze is invested with a complex of memories and stories and intellectual positions, cued by Jensen’s tale and Freud’s analysis of it, but the majority of the objects in his collection are types of votive offerings, dedicated figurines, or other small pots and urns made for ritual. His archaeological gaze should probably be connected intimately to his complex religious feelings which gave rise to Moses and Monotheism, just as his passion for classical Greece cannot be separated wholly from the complicity between Philhellenism and German nationalism50 – and Freud had good reason to reflect on racial and physiognomic stereotypes in fiercely antiSemitic Vienna;51 but Freud’s things do not give rise to the sort of religious and nationalist narrative that Bulwer revels in, any more than his collecting is like Scott’s antiquarianism.

Arbaces even claims that Christian theology is just a pale recollection of Egyptian thought: ‘the believers of Galilee are but the unconscious repeaters of one of the superstitions of the Nile’ (141). ’ It seems as if Bulwer is concerned that he may have made Arbaces too convincing, or as if he is worried that Arbaces’ voice might be mistaken for the author’s. Perhaps he was right to be worried. Robert Taylor, a significant influence on Darwin, was imprisoned in the 1830s on a charge of blasphemy in part for tracing scriptural ideas to Egyptian sources.
