More Nero and his Lyre

Last week I posted a series of photos of PEPLUM films with Nero playing his lyre while Rome burns. Here are a few more photos of such scenes plus additional scenes of Nero simply playing with his lyre (sans Rome burning).

There's still one Nero missing, and it's this 1909 silent movie, "Nero or the Fall of Rome":
