Mercury mosaic

Mosaic from Tarragona archaeological museum depicting Mercury.

The staff you can see is a caduceus...though incorrectly often ascribed as a symbolic representation of healthcare...due to confusion with the traditional medical symbol which is the rod of Asclepius which has but one snake and is never depicted with wings (thanks to Lorie A. Hambly for the clarification).
