Rich Roman Villas were decorated with Mosaics. This mosaic was discovered at Beryfield in Colchester in 1932 and dates to the mid 2nd century AD. It is made up of nine decorated panels. The central panel is of a stylised flower with heart shaped petals, with smaller flowers in the corners. The rectangular panels each show a sea beast pursuing a dolphin. It was made for quite a substantial property and is similar mosaics have been found at St Albans. Picture taken Colchester Castle Museum 2007.
