We have divided the material into eigth groups, according the kind of iconography: I. Animal motifs. II. Allegories of gods and myths. III. Gladiatorial games. IV. Scenes from everyday life. V. Erotic motifs. VI. Geometrical and vegetative motifs. VII. Various motifs difficult to classify. VIII. Motifs of christian symbols.
