Mosaic of Achilles: Young girl

To the right of Achilles is a young girl who is identified as a certain EUBRE[iseis]. She raises a flower in her right hand while chastely lifting the hem of her long tunic with her left hand as two Cupids or Erotes crown her with a wreath. There is a small fruitladen tree between Achilles and the young girl.
(From: Michele Piccirillo, page 76)
