Roman Mosaics in the Berlin Museums

 

Roman mosaics in the berlin museums

There are just a few Roman mosaics in the museums in Berlin and none are that easy to photograph, having difficult positioning or being behind glass but here are the best ones I have been able to get. The first is the Orpheus Mosaic from the Pegamon Museum.

Orpheus Mosaic

Located in the Pegamon Museum is the Orpheus Mosaic. Dated to 200 CE and from Miletus, an ancient Greek city on the western coast of Anatolia, near the mouth of the Maeander River in ancient Caria, modern day Turkey.
