PICTURED: An important Roman mosaic that has been saved for the nation went on display today at a county museum.<br />
<br />
The Dorset Museum unveiled the 1,700-year-old panel depicting a leopard attacking an antelope that it acquired earlier this year to stop it from going abroad. <br />

It forms the centrepiece for the venue which is about to reopen following a £16m transformation that has taken three years.
