Antakya mosaic Four Seasons

view map

On the corners of the full mosaic (what you see is the bottom 2/3 part) are winged cupids that represent the seasons, hence the name. The mosaic, inv. 1018, is from Harbiye, from the second century A.D. See the next pictures for details of them.

The central part should show Medeia while her brother Absyrtos is hiding. It's badly damaged.
