This mosaic was found in Aquileia near Trieste in Italy. It was from second half of 1st century, on the floor of a roman house. This mosaic represents an ancient roman tradition: at the end of a great banquet, the Romans used to throw the remains of the food on the floor if they had enjoyed the meal.
