Roman Mosaics & Inscriptions


The popularity of the Theseus and the Minotaur myth, and the attendant labyrinth symbol, were well known throughout the Roman Empire, in Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. It occurs at this time in many forms and various designs, but was especially popular as a decorative element in floor mosaics. It is also found as inscriptions - often in the form of simple graffiti on public buildings and the like.
