Description

Composed of three panels, this mosaic depicts dancers in two panels and Andromeda and Perseus in the third. Panels are confined in geometrical and herbal borders. Andromeda is the daughter of Cepheus, the king of Ethiopia, and Cassiopeia. Perseus is the son of Zeus and Danae. Andromeda’s mother says her daughter is more beautiful than the Nereids, the daughters of Nereus. Nereids ask Poseidon to punish her. Poseidon sends a sea monster named Cetus to ravage the coast of Ethiopia. The desperate King consults the Oracle of Apollo, who announces that no respite will be found until the king sacrifices his virgin daughter Andromeda to the monster. She is chained to a pole to be sacrificed to the monster. Having returned from slaying the Gorgon Medusa, Perseus finds Andromeda chained and kills Cetus by turning the monster to stone. He sets the girl free, and marries her.
