Burnt Palace, west wing

The area of the west wing is divided into two rooms, which had arches supporting the ceilings. The mosaic to the north (above) has two main panels separated by a strip of plain white tesserae on which a lion attacks a bull. On either side of the strip are geometric mosaics.

The square room to the south has a nearly intact mosaic floor decorated with a pattern of indented squares framed by a border of two-strand guilloche.
