[en] 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.
