According to the information card –
“On the south end of the large portico with swimming pool was a curving wall (nymphaeum) subdivided into eight exhedrae plastered with polychrome stuccoes, architectural motives and animated views, acting as a sort of stage-front for the swimming pool.
The central niches contained mosaics representing The Rape of Europe and Frixus with Elle.
Immediately behind the nymphaeum runs a tunnel (numbered 62-63), only partly excavated, with the same curvature as the nymphaeum.”
