My Photos: Italy -- Mosaics -- Sicily -- Piazza Armerina -- Arcade & Courtyard and Triclinium

A large, oval courtyard and arcade connect to the triclinium -- dining room -- 
and multiple rooms meant for relaxation and entertainment after meals.
The courtyard was paved with a zigzag mosaic, and the arcade was paved with
animal heads wreathed in acanthus leaves.

A statue of Dionysus was showcased in this room, and the floor mosaics depict scenes of wine production with cupids picking grapes, gathering grapes, and pressing grapes.
