Roman Mosaic

Pisces sign (without the connecting cord) is one of the 12 zodiac signs, which appear on a Roman Mosaic Floor from the third century C.E.  The Floor is exhibited at the Bardo Museum in Tunis.

To the best of my knowledge this is the only Roman Mosaic that contains both the zodiac signs and the hexagram.
