Opus designations

Opus designations

Opus literally means 'work'. In architectural terms this refers to a type of floor or wall covering, what goes over the wall or floor. In this database we are looking at the types of mosaic seen. In some types, such as Opus Vermiculatum, there are a number of interpretation so I have tried to include as many as are relevant.
