there was a roman house there in Thrace, Greece
YOU ARE ALL WELCOME
Mmm, and that house had the most beautiful floor.

@Sarito: many thanks
nicely captured piece of archaeological importance.....I believe some pieces of the mosaic tiles were taken & kept as souvenirs by tourists & visitors.....I am glad they cordoned off the artwork & hope there are security guards around.

@sawsengee: many thanks, well there is a fence protecting it, parts missing in the center are due to its accidental discovery by a person planting an olive tree!
Beautiful - I hope they preserve it for all to see.

@Mamyni: 1000+merci, have a fine weekend
Dear, oh,dear!!! I hardly can believe when I see these mosaics in good shape after hundreds of years! And so weird to think that, once, there were people treading on them!
