Roman mosaic showing venatores – warriors who hunted wild animals in the arena. The object is dated from the 3rd-4th century CE; found in the remains of the imperial palace in Gamzigrad – Felix Romuliana complex – near Zaječar, in eastern Serbia.
One of the venatores is standing, the other is kneeling behind a round shield, a spear in his hand. The paw of an animal (possibly a lion) is visible on the right side of the shield.
