These Roman mosaics lay buried until the 1950's when they were discovered and excavated. They reveal the opulent life of Imperial families and there is good evidence that the Villa may have been owned by Diocletian s co emperor Maximian. Roman mosaic on the floor of the room dubbed the "Chamber of the Ten Maidens", nicknamed "the bikini girls". They are competing for a laurel coronet in some sort of games and have a very modern look due to their Bikini style dress. Pompeii was one of the best preserved Roman cities when it was descovered and the art and mosaics that were excavated are some of the most beautiful Roman mosaic finds.
