The design of the present work is to bring together descriptions of Romano-British tesselated pavements which lie scattered through the writings of a great number of separate authors- to add thereto what has come under my own observation of the pavements themselves- and to present authentic copies, in plain and coloured engravings, of as many as may he found practicable or are within reach. Some are of simple geometrical designs- others of more elaborate composition, formed of lines, borders, and floral decorations- but the most interesting, of course, are those on which are depicted scenes of life or allegorical figures, and allusions to the numerous fabell which made up the atmosphere of the life and religion of the ancients, and threw over them a charm in their every-day affairs, whether at the dinner-table or in the bath, at the games of the circus or in the hunting-field, and even amidst the business and turmoil of the forum and the comitia.
