Part of Border of Megalopsychia Hunt Mosaic

Part of the border of the Megalopsychia Hunt Mosaic, which depicts a "day in the life" of fifth-century Antioch and Daphne and provides a guided tour from one to the other. This image shows part of the bottom border. On the left, a young woman (part of a group of three) pauses to the left of the Olympic Stadium, which has a tower and a monumental gate. A servant carries a basket, and beyond him a rider approaches a private bath, his way cleared by a servant. 450-75 AD, Yakto village near Daphne. Antakya Museum, inv. 1016. Photo © Dick Osseman.
