Zeugma video

Posted on


Thanks to Mosaic Art Now for posting this up. The video showing the sinopia (painted guidelines) found under one of the Roman mosaics found at Zeugma. It is mentioned at 9:35. Again this is sinopia found under a square shape border (swastika meander) rather than a curved shape such as any of the guilloche patterns. 

At 10:45 you can also see hammer and hardies in use cutting more tesserae for the work.
Go to 14;25 for a list of the constituents of the original mortar.
