Abstract

Three mosaics from a private collection were donated to D. Diogo de Sousa Archaeological Museum in Braga. One of them presents a hunting scene; another shows vine scrolls with leaves and grapes; the third presents a mythological scene where Pelops and Hippodamia are represented.
In this study, we describe these mosaics and we follow their path to integrate the MDDS collection in order to provide researchers with their study and to allow their use by all types of public. As we know, the mosaics’ musealization must be made within the context to better understand the past, but we can’t disprove all mosaics surveys, because due to these actions that are promptly condemned today, except when demanded for conservation and heritage preservation purposes, we can study and enjoy the beauty of many of these pieces.
