Roman mosaic in the villa of La Olmeda in the province of Palencia, Spain. In Greek and Roman culture, a single swastika was extremely rare. She is more often seen in groups. This sign was used throughout the Empire, whether clockwise or counterclockwise, on the mosaics decorating the walls and floors.

It was also found in temples, placed on the altars of deities, home furnishings and jewellery.
