Rare Roman mosaic has been discovered in southern England
In southern England, in Berkshire, a Roman mosaic has been discovered that shows the Greek hero Bellerophon riding a pegasus. It is one of the most interesting finds in Britain in the last 50 years.
The object is dated to around 380 CE. The find is a floor mosaic 6 meters long. The work in the central part shows the scene of the fight between the Greek hero and the chimaera and the offering of the hand of the king’s daughter as a reward. Later, Christians will rewrite this story as the story of Saint George and the dragon.
