My Photos: Italy -- Mosaics -- Sicily -- Piazza Armerina -- The Room of the Arion Mosaic

This large room was probably the private living room of the Domina.

In Greek mythology, Arion was an immortal horse who could speak.  He is frequently depicted as a man riding a horse, and is also frequently depicted riding a dolphin.
This mosaic shows Arion playing a lyre while riding a dolphin
