Neptune on chariot

Roman mosaic showing Neptune in a chariot, accompanied by Triton and Nereids. In the corners and sides of the work, we can see figures and animals that symbolize specific seasons – and so olives and wild boar symbolize winter; roses and dog, spring; lion and grain, summer; leopard and grapes, autumn. The object was found in Chebba and dates back to the middle of the 3rd century CE.

It is located in the Bardo museum in Tunis (Tunisia).
