It later became one of the most important centers of Thrace (historical region of Southeast Europe, which is currently divided between Greece, Turkey and Bulgaria. It corresponds to the ancient Macedonian region).
These amazing mosaics dating from the second half of the 2nd-3rd centuries AD were part of a triclinium - a formal dining room with three beds - and a Roman public bath.
Recently, a new section of a spectacularly colorful mosaic was discovered, including depictions of centaurs, dolphins, cupids, and seahorses.
This new section of the mosaic, representing 90 square meters out of a total of 140 square meters, is made of glass and is surrounded by vines and ivy leaves, which was a sign of honor to the Greek god Dionysus.
