Dionysus' triumf

I group some pictures here of a mosaic from the House of Poseidon. Its border is a meandering group of swastika's and squares containing Salomons' knots (two convoluted ovals).

The persons can be identified as their names are shown: Dionysos, Nike and a maenad. Dionysos stands on one of two panthers pulling a wagon with spoked wheels. He has a nimbus. In his right hand he holds a thyrsos. He wears a long tunic . Next to him stands Nike, who handles the panthers. To the right a maenad dances with a cymbal.
