Mosaic floor in Villa Romana del Casale - the Triclinium - The Twelve Labours
The triclinium is a monumental dining room, probably used for banquets and other social events with important guests. It is a square room, 12×12m, with entrance from the elliptical Peristyle on the west side, supported by two columns, and three large apses with a diameter of about 8m on the north, east and south sides, each separated from the central room by two columns. In the back of each apse is the pedestal of a statue.
