Personification of Agora (Abundance of the Marketplace)
Artist: Unknown Roman Artist Primary
Late 4th century CE
Funerary banquets were a regular feature of late-antique Roman life, as the living returned to the necropolis to hold feasts in honor of the dead. This floor is unusual for its female subjects; it has been suggested that the women depicted in the central scene may have been part of a business association. A kinship relationship is another possibility.
