Description: Mosaic is the central picture of a large mosaic: on the left side you can see the heaver with jars, seated at his feet a shepherd prepares to milking. A third personage, dressed in a tunic, holding a stick. This scene remains open to interpretation - Dionysus and the goat Amalthea? Can be found parallels with frescoes from Pompeii of I-st century (house of Jason, Pompeii IX, 5, 18).
Of unknown provenance, the style of the mosaic can be dated to the period of Severan dynasty (first half of the III-th century).
