13 Painted Biclinium at Little Petra in Jordan

These two people in front of the large, square opening are exploring the Biclinium. This 1st century dining room became famous in 2010 with the discovery of a huge painting depicting grapes and vines. The Hellenistic-style artwork is assumed to honor Dionysus. He was the son of Zeus and the Greek god of wine plus the creator of viticulture. Since this very rare Nabataean fresco was restored, access inside of the Biclinium is no longer possible.
