Different fragments of a triclinium’s (dining room) big mosaic pavement. The space is compartmentalised by a garland of laurel leaves forming square panels bordered by wall-hangings. Ready-to-consume victuals (Xenia) figure inside each panel: wild boars and sows, female deers between small trees, a chaplet of thrushes suspended to a ring by their beaks, two wild ducks, a goat flanked with two small trees, a goose, a parrot, two rock mullets, and white and dark grapes.
