"I found Cicero lying on a couch beside Terentia."

The Romans reclined on couches to dine, with the exception of children and slaves who ate sitting on chairs. This Roman floor mosaic looks as though it has been deliberately designed to fit around the curved shape of the dining couches, so that the decoration can be enjoyed by the recliners.
