Z31.15B EROTES RIDING BIRDS
|Museum Collection||Bardo National Museum, Tunis|
|Context||Utica, Oceanus or Neptune Mosaic|
A company of Erotes (Roman Cupids) wing their way through the air on the backs of long-necked birds--peacocks and peahens, geese and perhaps also cranes. The winged gods of love are armed with spears and several carry bucklers.
