Tunics in Tunisia

When the Romans destroyed ancient Carthage, they rebuilt the city and populated the land.

In the area of ancient Carthage, just above where the destroyed Punic artist quarter, the Romans constructed beautiful villas that ascend up the hill, terraced one on top of the other.

As I was walking through one such villa, I came across some floor mosaics, which narrate the story of how Roman men dressed in North Africa during the time of Roman Carthage.

Notice the colorful details on each Tunic. The patterns follow a geometric symmetry with lots of borders, cuffs, and breast pieces.

The photos that follow the mosaics are from the surrounding Roman villas. Enjoy the romantic walk through the villas here!
