Ancient Mosaic of Girls in Bikinis (4th Century AD)

Click to enlarge

I simply love this. Here we have a "bikini girls" mosaic (found by archeological excavation of the ancient Roman villa near Piazza Armerina in Sicily), showing women exercising, running, or receiving the palm of victory and crown (for winning an athletic competition).
