The Achilles Mosaic from the 'Villa with a View' in Ptolemais (Libya)
Languages of publication
This is a publication of a fragmentary mosaic that originally adorned an upper-floor room of the 3rd cent. 'Villa with a View' in Ptolemais. Among hundreds of smaller pieces and loose tesserae found in the debris above the Mosaic of Dionysus in the triclinium, several scenes illustrating the myth of Achilles could be identified, including that of the unmasking of Achilles on Skyros and a group of three figures (Thetis entrusting Achilles to the care of Lykomedes?). Further reconstruction and conservation works are needed.
