This mosaic depicts the seduction scene in Holofernes’s tent. Judith acts seductively pretending to be enamoured with Holofernes. He is totally captivated by her charms and drinks heavily the wine Judith pours and encourages him to drink throughout the evening until, completely drunk, Holofernes falls asleep.
