Description

BOOK DESCRIPTION
Mosaic pavements are typically analysed by their representational decoration to ascertain the meaning of individual scenes and how these relate to allegory, mythology, or symbolism. The approach in this work differs in that it views the technique, decoration and inscriptions on Late Roman floor mosaics in Phoenicia and Northern Palestine to identify micro and economic trends, their dynamic social role in private and religious buildings, and individual patterns of patronage.
