An inlaid Marble Floor that is located just west of the Elliptical Nymphaeum.  It has wonderful geometric patterns of cut marble—opus sectile.  This type of flooring was much more expensive than mosaic floors.  The floor belonged to a hall with internal porticoes supported by columns of which the foundations in travertine blocks survive.

Its date is uncertain.  Below it, not visible, was Nero's Domus Transitoria, but it does not seem to belong to that structure.
