Roman mosaic showing the mysterious figure of a man with the head of a rooster. The object comes from Brading Villa on the Isle of Wight in England. Scientists suspect that the character may satirically depict the emperor Constantius Gallus (reigned in 351-354 CE), whose nickname means “cock” in Latin. The mosaic is dated to the 4th century CE.
