Abstract:   Excavated in 1925, the Roman villa at Corinth is famous for its well-preserved mosaics, showing goat herdsmen and other pastoral themes. Of rectangular design, they are curtailed or supplemented to fit into irregularly-shaped rooms, leading to the author's suggestion that these were Late Hellenistic creations reused in a Roman context. The book is notable for its large size and portfolio format, with large-scale color plates following loose-leaf text pages.
