VII.16.a Pompeii. May 2018. Two mosaic fragments belonging to the suburban baths now in VII.7.5.
Photo courtesy of Buzz Ferebee.
According to the Soprintendenza web site, these were discovered during the 1959 excavation. 
They were part of a barrel vault of an area (m 11,40 x 7,60), which is almost completely occupied by a swimming pool warmed up through a ‘samovar’ system (and this is the only case known in Pompeii so far). 
The rare mosaic, which is stylistically close to Fourth Style paintings, was made after the AD 62 earthquake.
