"The mosaic in the central part of the cubicle shows scenes of children hunting. It is divided in three registers. There are three children in the upper register. In the centre a boy is chasing a hare towards a boy to the left, who is thrusting his venabulum, spear, in the breast of the hare so the blood is flowing heavily from the wound. To the right a boy has caught a duck with a lasso and the bird is flapping its wings violently in an attempt to evade capture.
