Atrium of Fishing Cupids

The mosaic in the portico resembles the mosaic in the Room of the Fishing Cupids. Cupids aboard six boats are fishing in the abundant sea, teeming with life, employing a number of different fishing techniques. In the centre of the composition, in front of the entrance to the Room of Arion, a pair of cupids are swimming in the sea. In the background, along the outer perimeter of the semicircle, the shore is lined with a number of porticoes with pavilions.
