An artistic representation by Balage Balogh of the triclinium of the Roman Villa that was excavated at Sepphoris.

Overview looking south at the mosaic in the “triclinium” (dining hall) of the Roman Villa.

Along the near edges (right and left) note the couches over the plain white mosaic portions.

In the center of the image is a rectangular mosaic inside of a rectangular outline.  The outer band of the mosaic contains 22 medallions of intertwined acanthus leaves that contain a variety of figures.

In the central section are fifteen panels that depict scenes associated with the life of Dionysus, the good of wine and merriment in Greek mythology.
