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

Along the edges on the left side of the image, note the plain white mosaic portions.  These are the areas where the dinners reclined, and thus they are quite plain.

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.
