    About

    A print of a 2,000 year old mosaic from Pompeii that shows street musicians; men playing a tambourine and cymbals and a woman playing the double flute. Almost all the characters are wearing masks, which shows that they are actors. The mosaic has an inscription in Greek saying: 'Dioskourides of Samos made this' - no modesty on the part of the artist. Though the mosaic is a fascinating work of art in its own right, what, if anything, does the scene mean? Scholars now believe that it shows a scene from the play Theophoroumene meaning 'The Possessed Girl' - an almost lost play by Meander. As with this example, mosaics have often preserved echoes of works of art and literature that would otherwise have been lost.
