A wonderful mosaic showing a dog with a golden vessel in which wine or water was kept – so-called askos. The object was discovered in Alexandria in 1993 and dates to the 2nd – 1st century BCE. Currently, the artefact can be admired at the Greek-Roman Museum in Alexandria.
The mosaic impresses with its extraordinary detail, colour and realism of the situation.
