Skull Mosaic from Pompeii[1] (House cum workshop I, 5, 2, triclinium).30 B.C. — 14 A.D. Inv. 109982. Mosaic Collection Naples of the Naples, National Archaeological Museum (inv. nr. 109982).The mosaic represents the Wheel of Fortune and reversal of fortune. When turned it can make the rich (symbolized by the purple cloth on the left) poor and the poor (symbolized by the goat right) rich. It also marks precariousness, death lurks in every age, and life is hanging by a thread: if it breaks, it flies from the soul (symbolized by the butterfly), making all equal.

Quel cuor perdesti
per un miraggio
quel cuor tradisti
odiar di più, non puó !
la mia voce, senti
il suo dolor… o no ?
la tua sparí
e io, pazza, t’aspetto !
Dimenticar…
o non più vivere
ormai, salvo…
la notte… la notte… la notte…
ah !…
Spente le stelle
col pallido raggio di luna
piange l’amore
che si lancia come l’onda poi se ne va
vuota, la notte
e la sua speranza breve
ora sgorga l’amaro pianto
un cuor ferito, disperato passa qua
Dunque fuggisti
i sogni vuoti
dunque perdesi
i brevi vortici
Dimenticar…
o non più vivere
ormai, salvo…
la notte… la notte… la notte…
ah !…
Spente le stelle
col pallido raggio di luna
piange l’amore
che si lancia come l’onda poi se ne va
vuota, la notte
e la sua speranza breve
ora sgorga l’amaro pianto
un cuor ferito, disperato passa qua
Vuota, la notte
e la sua speranza breve
ora sgorga l’amaro pianto
un cuor ferito, disperato passa qua
