Xystus and rooms of the ovoid Portico

The room of the Grape-Harvesting cherubs

In another room in the quarter, the mosaic floor depicts some winged cherubs , adorned with jewels and armlets , intent on picking grapes in the middle of vine shoots.
The ornament is presented like embroidery that embellishes the whole scene, where we can see a figure of an old man inside a medallion.
The whole scene describes the technique of vine cultivation undoubtedly present in the latifundium surrounding the Villa. The figure enclosed in the medallion is portrayed with white-hair surrounded by a vine shoot, and a long beard.
The typology of the representation can be traced back to the depiction of Silenus , the tutor of Dionysus , or of Autumn.
