A mosaic from the Roman town of Pompeii, buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 CE. Such fine mosaics were a common feature of floors in the villas of the town and depicted scenes from mythology, the owner's business interests or, as here, animal scenes. (Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy).
