Massive Mosaic Uncovered in Roman Cilicia

The recent discovery of this enormous well-preserved mosaic floor highlights the Romanized architecture in 3rd-4th century Cilicia.

University of Nebraska, Lincoln archaeologists have exposed the largest Roman mosaic ever discovered in Cilicia. The 16,000-square-foot mosaic was uncovered during the excavation of the ancient city Antiochia ad Cragum in southeastern Turkey, an originally Hellenistic settlement near the Mediterranean coast. The mosaic features geometric patterns, and excavation director Michael Hoff says that the presence of such a grand mosaic in Cilicia highlights a closer connection to the elite Roman world well attested in so many other regions of the broader Roman Empire.

The pristine shape of the mosaic is sure to attract greater archaeological attention to the Romanized world of Cilicia.
