Hellenistic mosaic found in Italy

A large mosaic, probably of Greek origin, has been discovered in the Italian town of Monasterace. The finding was announced Thursday by Mayor María Carmela Lanzetta.

The polychrome mosaic, very well preserved, measures 25 square meters and covers the entire floor of a room in a thermal bath.

According to the archaeologist Francesco Cuteri, who made the discovery, the mosaic is the largest found in southern Italy and dates from the Hellenistic period, which developed from approximately 323 BC to 146 BC.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
