As someone who loves the beauty and craftsmanship of ancient mosaics, I was mesmerized by the spectacular collection of mosaics I found at the National Museum. Subjects ranged from gods and goddesses to animals and fishes.

Many mosaics were found in Roman dining rooms so scenes of "edibles" are also abundant.
