Extremely interesting mosaic floor from Villa Romana del Casale – a luxury villa in Sicily. The work shows women in bikinis practising sports (weightlifting, discus throwing, running and playing ball). On the left, one of the girls – wearing a toga – hands a crown and a spot of victory.
The mosaic was brought to light in 1959-60 in the so-called “Hall of Ten Girls”.
