A large number of Roman mosaics have been unearthed in situ at Aphrodisias. They were crafted following the opus sectile and opus tessellatum techniques. These mosaics incorporate mainly non-representational geometric themes, although they do include some pictorial representations, repeating earlier motifs found in other areas of the Roman world.
