The first photo shows an example of the mosaics from the first pre-Euphrasian basilica that were preserved and now shown in the mosaic museum, in the basement of the Euphrasian basilica, together with fragments of carved stones.

The geometric figure shown on the second photo was once a part of the pavement of the pre-Euphrasian basilica. This type of design is often represented in the whole Mediterranean and Middle East area. It is usually considered to represent the wheel of the sun with its rays.

The third photo shows a different design of the same geometric sun like figure, more unsophisticated and closer to the simplest drawing, without any fancy added. It can be older than the previous one. There is another one, half broken, on the right. It says : MEMORIUSETVALERIAPL
