Caption: Panther and wine symbols, Roman mosaic. Mosaics consist of small pieces of coloured glass or stone, used to form an image or pattern on a floor or wall. This diamond-shaped mosaic shows a panther with symbols of Dionysus (the god of wine). These symbols include the fennel stave (thyrsus), topped with a pine cone and fig leaves. This mosaic is displayed in the Archaeological Museum of Naples, Italy.
