Floor mosaic Review

The central scene of this large and lovely mosaic—which otherwise features geometric patterns and plants aplenty—is of the punishment of Dirce, who, according to Greek legend, lies under the enraged bull to whose horns she is about to be fastened. Unearthed after World War II bombing, the mosaic, which was once part of a Roman house, can be viewed for free by looking down through a grating beside an uninspiring apartment building, a stone's throw from the Chapel of St. Mary of Formosa.
