Fresco fragment from Ephesus

Fragment of a decorative fresco from a wealthy home in Ephesus. The style of painting is very much like that found in private homes at other Roman sites around the Mediterranean, especially Pompeii and Herculaneum in Italy. In the central figure of the panel a winged male figure (Eros?) drives a chariot pulled by twin leopards.
