Fragment of a Mosaic Pavement with Maenad, from the Constantinian Villa at Daphne-Harbie

View through Harvard Museums
This fragmentary mosaic panel likely represents a maenad. The remaining portion of the pavement depicts a female head, tilted to the right, with hair in shades of brown. The figure carries or wears a bundle of flowers in shades of deep purple and pink stone tesserae. Traces of green glass tesserae frame the bouquet. The figure is surrounded by a pointed frame, which when complete would have formed an elliptical shape.
