A Roman Fish

Anyone following this blog must have noticed that I post pictures of Roman fish from time to time. Here's one, dated to 30 BC-330 AD from Cyprus - it looks so modern, I could have walked right by it at a flee market.

You might want to compare it to any of these: fauces mosaic, sea monster fauces mosaic, marine style vessel, fish and squid, an ugly fish from Ostia, marine fresco, fish mosaic from the baths of Caracalla, a dophin from Ostia, fish painting from the Peirene spring at Corinth, a mosaic (prophetic fish) from Monte Martini and a fish from Nemea.
