Amazing floor mosaic in the atrium of the villa of the wealthy merchant Aulus Umbricius Scaurus in Pompeii. The man traded the famous fish sauce – garum.
Black and white tiles surround irregularly trimmed, coloured pieces of marble and limestone. The mosaic is arranged in the style of lithostroton. The object dates to the 1st century CE.
