The cement pavements of the Domus dei Bucrani, a remarkable Late Republic villa unearthed from the deepest strata of the Schola del Traiano in Ostia Antica, have already been discussed in several publications. To this day, the context of the find, its chronological sequence and its description, all in relation with other elements of the Second Style decorative system, are well known amongst the specialised scientific community. Nevertheless, a technological analysis of these floors, in the specific context of the Latium production has yet to be completed. The documentation campaigns led at the moment by the Université de Liège on the site and in the deposits of Ostia Antica aim to fill this critical gap with a close study that will be supported by an archaeometrical analysis. The preliminary results of these ventures are presented here. [less ▲]

La Domus a Peristilio (IV, V, 16) est l’une des rares maisons à atrium d’Ostie qui ont été fouillées récemment de manière exhaustive. Les investigations conduites sur cette parcelle par l’Université Lumière Lyon 2 entre 2002 et 2010 ont permis de poser un regard nouveau sur cette forme architecturale et de poser de nouvelles questions à propos de cet type d’habitat qui, jusqu’à présent, est resté en marge des études sur l’architecture domestique d’Ostie depuis les dégagements des années 1938-42. L’étude des sols et des pavements en particulier a livré de nouvelles données. Les fouilles stratigraphiques menées sur cette parcelle ont mis en évidence les différentes composantes des sols de cet édifice construit au début de l’empire. Notre communication se proposera dans un premier temps d’étudier les différentes couches qui composent ces sols, qui se rapprochent de la description du sol type proposée par Vitruve lui-même (statumen, rudus, nucleus), et de montrer leur particularité par rapport aux sols postérieurs mis en évidence à Ostie. En effet, les fouilles conduites à l’embouchure du Tibre depuis les années 60-70 sous les niveaux de sols impériaux ont permis de mieux caractériser la composition de nombreux sols aménagés à partir du IIe s. de notre ère et la mission de la Schola del Traiano ne fait pas exception, puisque plusieurs sols construits au IIIe siècle ont été documentés. Cette première partie posera ainsi des jalons essentiels pour appréhender l’histoire des techniques adoptées pour la constructions des sols à l’embouchure du Tibre, avant que ne soient réaliser des analyses archéométriques. Dans un second temps, cette communication s’intéressera plus particulièrement aux divers pavements qui recouvraient les sols de la Domus a Peristilio, parmi lesquels un des plus anciens opus sectile du port de Rome. Cette étude prendra à la fois en compte le style de ces pavements et les matériaux utilisés pour les réaliser. Certains d’entre eux témoignent de réaménagements, voire de restaurations, opérés dans cette maison au cours de son histoire qui prit fin sous les Sévères. La stratigraphie des sols montrent par exemple que les pavements de l’atrium et du péristyle ont été refait, au moins en partie. Ces nouveaux pavements, qu’il s’agisse de mosaïques ou de béton de sol avec incrustations de marbre, contrastent avec les pavements des nouvelles demeures construites à Ostie à partir du IIe siècle ap. J.-C., comme l’Insula delle Muse (III, IX, 22). Cette situation n’est pas isolée à Ostie et un constat similaire semble s’imposer dans la Domus di Giove Fulminatore (IV, IV, 3) [less ▲]

Discovered in 1938-1939 under the “Schola del Traiano”, the “Domus a Peristilio” has immediately been remarkably reconstructed. Even though the construction itself was thrown the spotlights, the mosaic of the room 81 failed to catch the attention of modern researchers. However, this mosaic is marked out by two reasons: in first place, it is one of the very few examples of mosaic work of the beginning of the Empire in Ostia, and for that reason, it was pointed out as one of the earliest opera tessellata unearthed in the site. On the other hand, its honeycomb-pattern, also presenting a pseudoemblema, is absolutely outstanding and unique. Based on the documentation established during the archaeological mission of the “Schola del Traiano” (2002-2010), we hope to bring back this mosaic from the abysses and to update the concerning available information (new photographic coverage, drawings and graphic restitution). We also aim to sit- uate this mosaic, first amongst the rest of the Latium productions, then in a larger, italic scale. Finally, we hope to reconstruct the mosaic and the room in which it lays according to the relations it entertained with surrounding areas. [less ▲]

This intervention suggests a synthesis of the totality of data concerning the rear section of the “Schola del Traiano” in Ostia: the most recent results of the excavations, as well as the raised sections and the decorative elements, will be discussed and integrated into an overall outlook of this wing of the building. This procedure aims to demonstrate the need to resume the analysis of mosaics, the only element of conflict. The results of this survey will be the object, in a synthetic way, of the second part of this article. Each floor will be placed in its visual horizon, herein limited to Latium and the archaeological and the decorative contexts will be taken into account for each parallel. Although the results seem to be rather limited, the investigation allowed us to uncover some issues linked to Latium’s mosaic production and more particularly concerning the mosaics found in the sites of both Rome and Ostia. Nevertheless, by means of our analytical synthesis, we are forced to change our minds and reconsider our understanding of the “Schola del Traiano”: the South Wing and its mosaics couldn’t have been built before the middle of the third century AD.
