The Leadenhall Street (Roman) Mosaic was discovered during building work on the premises of the East India Company in Leadenhall Street, City of London. The surviving medallion depicts Bacchus with a wreath of vine leaves on his head and a goblet in his hand astride a tigress. The design was recorded, before the floor was removed in sections. During the nineteenth century, fragments of the mosaic were stored in the open air, and their condition deteriorated. Three sections, including the central roundel, were subsequently restored. As a consequence, the present surface represents Victorian conservation rather than the original Roman appearance. The surviving pieces were transferred to the British Museum in 1880.
