Arkeonews writes about it.

The mosaic was found during work to replace gas pipes in the village of Montorio near Verona. There is no direct evidence that the find belonged, but given the scale and wealth of the villa, scientists suggest that it was owned by Emperor Theodoric or one of his close associates.
