  2. Thanks Silver Whistle, there are some amazing Late Roman shield designs and costumes on these mosaics. I've just updated the post with more photos as I'd forgot I had so many.

  3. Superb. Facinated by the bikini girls. Are they dancers or temple wenches or what?

  4. Thanks John, this mosaic is also called 'The Chamber of the Ten Maidens' and depicts young women playing sport.
