Methiokos

I transfer pictures from several visits to these mosaics to sub-galleries in the Zeugma gallery to put some order in them. This is one such gallery. You will see my technique and equipment (and opinion on what looks best) changes over the years, as do the displays.

The Zeugma site explains that the man Methiokos loved the girl Parthenope, who loved him too, but had made a vow to keep her virginity. She fled to Italy, devoting herself to the winegod Dionysos. However, Aphrodite could not accept she refused physical love, and transformed her into the demon Siren (woman's head, bird's body).
