Does this mosaic depict labyrinths being used in city defence?

I have recently found [pictures of a mosaic](https://www.flickr.com/photos/carolemage/32584586736/in/photostream/) with its description being ” **Mosaic depicting a labyrinth surrounded by city walls with towers, 100-80 BC, from Piazza San Giovanni in Laterano, excavation of a Republican Domus, Centrale Montemartini, Rome.”** Can anyone explain to me what this means? Is it just a labyrinth surrounded by city walls or is it a part of the city defence?
