Mosaic depicting Euterpe, the Muse of music, found in the Roman villa of Els Munts (Altafulla).
It shows a female bust with an "aulos" (double flute) and a crest, the attributes of Euterpe, one of the nine Muses. Executed in "opus vermiculatum", the mosaic is inserted into a ceramic piece that acts simultaneously as a support and a frame. Its manufacture is technically perfect and its artistic quality magnificent; it is perhaps attributable stylistically to a central Italian workshop.
