Isn't that Saturn?
Found a collection of carved-out coins and noticed a drachma among them.
Yep, just noticing a drachma makes me instantly connect it to Submachine because there's no other way I would ever know what it was otherwise.

Medium: Red sandstone; pierced, carved
So I saw this and thought the pattern reminded me of the South Garden map, which got me thinking: something like this could make for a really cool puzzle where you have to figure out a map and input locations on an interface that looks like the grid on the window.

Y'all can't tell me this isn't straight outta some Submachine fantasy. Needs a cat statue. In fact I feel like Submachine needs more circular antechambers like this; the mosaic in the center looks like somebody just solved a puzzle and opened an entrance to the next room.
