Antakya dec 2008 6084.jpg

From the "Four Seasons" mosaic. The mosaic, inv. 1018, is from Harbiye, from the second century A.D. It's named after the winged figures representing the seasons. This is Spring. Naked and winged he wears a wreath of leaves on his head and a garland of flowers round his neck. He is walking and there is a bowl in his left hand. On his right there originally was a goat of some sort, of which only two feet remain.
