In the center of the image is a rectangular mosaic inside of a rectangular outline.  The outer band of the mosaic contains 22 medallions of intertwined acanthus leaves that contain a variety of figures.

In the central section are fifteen panels that depict scenes associated with the life of Dionysus, the good of wine and merriment in Greek mythology.
