Room with Girls in Bikini

Room with Girls in Bikini, Villa Romana del Casale

This room is believed to have been used by servants so should have been merely geometric design. There is such a floor underneath and this one was laid over the top in Byzantine times. Strange imagery- women doing sports and there are various theories some that this villa (whose actual owners and/or purpose is still a mystery) may have been a brothel, public baths, or who knows the first example of Title IX?!
