    Conserving the mosaics

    by shrimp56 Written Aug 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    You can see some of the conservation practices on my Ohrid and Heraclea pages. Here sand is placed over part of the mosaics as protection. I assume they rotate which sections are exposed.

    Storage jars

    I'm assuming these were for grain or for oil or ... there wasn't any information available that I could see. I would also assume that these are reproductions.

    A Roman ruin

    by shrimp56 Written Aug 1, 2003

    I *thought* I would remember what everything was -- anyway this is another Roman ruin at Stobi. From the looks I'd say it was a basilica.

    The amphitheatre seating ...

    The seats look as hard as your average college football stadium -- I wonder what the Romans brought to keep their seats comfy :)))))

    Watch your step!!!

    These are the stairs you use to reach your seat in the amphitheatre -- I'd watch my step if I were you:) The amphitheatre at Stobi has not been renovated the way they have been at Ohrid and Heraclea.

    The amphitheatre is still in use!

    Every Roman amphitheatre in Macedonia that can be used for performances is I think -- from Bitola, to Heraclea, to Ohrid to ... Stobi.

    The mosaics in the baptistry

    by shrimp56 Written Aug 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The baptistry forms a circle around what was the large baptismal font. The floor is covered with many animal and floral motifs as you can see in this photo.
