On the Cover: Mosaics Then and Now

Detail of Alexander the Great taken from a mosaic floor depicting the defeat of the Persian King Darius at the Battle of Issus. This piece clearly shows how the Greeks imitated painting techniques by placing the tesserae close together like painter's brush strokes. Dating Back to 100 B.C., this mosaic is on display in the Naples Museum.
