The ancient floor of the andrôn A at Labraunda: Techniques and iconography

Le sol antique de l’andrôn A de Labraunda : technique et décor

Abstract

Andrôn A, one of the most important standing buildings of Labraunda, was dedicated between 377/376 and 351/350 bc to Zeus Labraundos by Idrieus, brother of Mausolus and heir to the Hekatomnid dynasty. Like andrôn B of Mausolus, this building was used both as a banqueting hall and as a monumental reception hall for audiences with the satrap. The recent excavations carried out within andrôn A revealed the presence of many fragments of pebble mosaics which we interpret as part of the original floor. We suggest that its decorative scheme included figures of wild animals and of at least a decoration including an anthemion.
