Mosaics of Antioch

The mosaics of Antioch are a grouping of over 300 mosaic floors from the region of Antioch. They date from the centuries before the 520s, when Antioch was destroyed by an earthquake. They were discovered during archaeological excavations of Antioch between 1932 and 1939 by a consortium of five museums and institutions. About half of the mosaics are housed at the Hatay Archaeology Museum in Antakya, with others currently residing at the Worcester Art Museum, Baltimore Museum of Art, Harvard University and Princeton University Art Museum among others.
