Das Mosaik, das aus dem 3. Jahrhundert nach Christus stammt, wurde in der Hadrumetum in Sousse, Tunesien entdeckt und ist jetzt im Bardo-Museum in Tunis, Tunesien.
  • English: The great Latin poet, Virgil, holding a volume on which is written the Aenid. On either side stand the two muses: "Clio" (history) and "Melpomene" (tragedy). The mosaic, which dates from the 3rd Century A.D., was discovered in the Hadrumetum in Sousse, Tunisia and is now on display in the Bardo Museum in Tunis, Tunisia.

  • Français : Mosaïque romaine du IIIe siècle entourée d'une frise (Musée du Bardo). Au centre le poète latin Virgile assis, en toge blanche, avec en main le rouleau de L'Énéide, dont on peut déchiffrer le vers 8 :
    Musa, mihi causas memora, quo numine laeso
    (Muse, rappelle-moi les causes, par quelle volonté divine...). Le poète est entouré de deux Muses en robe pourpre, Clio, qui tient un parchemin, et Melpomène un masque de théâtre. Découverte à Sousse.
