Content (description)

The broad outer border consists of a plain blue band, a plain pink band, a band of blue meander with a panel of cable in the centre of each side, and lastly a band of cable pattern. The inner space is divided into two equal squares, which are separated by a panel of lunettes framed in bands of cable and triangles; this panel is also repeated at the other side of the South square. Within this square is a circle, with a bird in each spandrel. In the circle is a band of cable and then a broad band of floral scroll, which rises from a bearded head on North. At the centre, framed by bands of cable, running triangle and meander, is a representation of Dionysus with a thyrsus and vase riding on the back of a tiger over fishes. The North square has an outer band of swasticas, within which is inscribed a circle, with kraters and hearts in alternate spandrels. Within the circle, which is of chain pattern, is another square, with floral scrolls in the arcs so formed. At the centre of the square is a guilloche mat.
