In 1966, in the little village of Smirat, in the fertile olive oil belt of Tunisia, a splendid mosaic – shown on the opening page of this feature – was discovered. Presumably it formed part of a magnificent country villa belonging to Magerius. It was carefully lifted and taken to the museum at Sousse where it is one of the highlights of their collection.

Opera poligonale - (opus poligonalis, opus siliceum) è una tecnica di costruzione antica diffusa nell'Italia centrale, tra il VII ed il IV secolo a.C. e impiegata anche in altre epoche storiche. Consiste nella sovrapposizione di massi in pietra non lavorati o poco lavorati, anche di notevoli dimensioni, senza ausilio di malta o altri leganti. Lo stesso peso dei massi utilizzati assicura la stabilità delle strutture.
