Abstract

The richness of the mosaic artistic creativity of Salona’s
mosaicists is certainly enhanced by the floor mosaics in the
baths discovered at the Jankovače site near the harbour of
ancient Salona. Although even today they are in situ and
their condition unknown, based on the documentation
from research conducted in the 1930s, they can be classifi ed among the finest examples of classical Roman multicoloured
figural mosaic art of the Salona mosaic school/
workshop. Cataloguing this mosaic group constitute a
contribution to the study of the body of Classical era mosaics
of the province of Dalmatia.
