Fragments of Painted Plaster and Marble from the Roman Villas on Katoro Peninsula and Tiola Cape next to Umag Found During the Early Archaeological Researches in 1957 and 1970/71

Abstract

Ovim člankom obrađeni su ulomci oslikane žbuke i mramora iz rimskih vila s lokaliteta Katoro i Katoro-Tiola, pokraj Umaga. Očuvani dekor pripadao je zidnoj i stropnoj površini. Datacija ulomaka predložena je na osnovu stilističke analize. Ulomci s oslikanim čipkastim bordurama karakterističnim za IV. stil na žutoj i bijeloj podlozi otkriveni su na lokalitetu Katoro, dok se na lokalitetu Katoro-Tiola očuvao jedan ulomak s prikazom čipkaste bordure iz kraja I. st. ili početka II. st. te malobrojni ulomci na bijeloj podlozi s raznim motivima za koje je predložena datacija u II. st. Mramornih nalaza na lokalitetu bilo je vrlo malo, ali svejedno prikazuju nekadašnje bogatstvo vile. Sačuvani ulomci dokazuju postojanje mramornih opus sectile podova kao i korištenje mramornih elemenata u horizontalnoj separaciji zidnih površina.In this article, the fragments of painted plaster and marble from the Roman villas located on the Katoro and Katoro-Tiola sites next to Umag, were analyzed. The preserved décor was once part of the wall and ceiling surface. Dating of the fragments was suggested based on the stylistical analysis. The fragments with painted lace bordure specific for the Fourth style on a yellow and white background were found on the Katoro site, while on the Katoro-Tiola site one fragment showing lace bordure from the end of the 1st or the beginning of the 2nd century was preserved as well as few fragments on a white background with different motifs that have been placed in the 2nd century. Marble findings on the site have been scarce, but all the same show former glory of the villa. The preserved fragments prove the existence of marble opus sectile floors as well as the use of marble elements for horizontal separation of wall surfaces
