25 Birds Mosaic Floor at Archaeological Museum in Delphi, Greece

Another section of the mosaic floor from the local Byzantine church features birds. Among the species are a pigeon, quail, partridge, magpie and mallard. They are centered in diamond-shaped panels and separated by guilloche borders. There are two other parts of the floor (not shown). One displays domestic animals (such as a dog, cat, sheep and rooster) and the fourth has wild animals (lion, pole cat, zebra, deer and boar). A keen eye will also spot marine life such as an eel, squid and different types of fish.
