The book includes the finest of the Antioch mosaic pavements displayed in the Hatay Archaeological Museum in Antakya, Turkey. The pavements were brought to light in and around Antioch on the Orontes (Antakya), Seleucia Pieria (Çevlik) and Daphne (Defne) in 1932-37.
The excavations have shown that in the whole area there was not a single better-class house without mosaic pavements decorating its entrance, halls, dining rooms, corridors and sometimes the bottoms of its pools. In addition to pavements which came from structures built in different periods, mosaics which came from the different levels of the same buildings have enabled scholars to construct a gradual and unbroken development of classical Roman mosaics covering its iconographic and stylistic changes from the first century of the Common Era to the beginning of the sixth.
