Abstract
Description
On the floor, near the altar within the Church of St. Paul at the Three Fountains, are mosaics that depict allegories of the Four Seasons. According to Wikipedia (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/San_Paolo_alle_Tre_Fontane): "Remains of a late Roman mosaic floor are preserved in the nave. It was donated to the church by Pope Pius IX and is said to have been brought here from Ostia, Rome's port in the imperial period."
