On the first photo, the carving shows a bishop's cap on top and a coat of arm with a dove and the date of 1488.The name carved underneath might be the bishop's name. According to its shape, it might be the top of a doorway in the archbishop's palace.

The second photo shows what seems to be a window frame (a bull's eye window). It has been carved in one single stone, with a cross in its middle part, and is coming from the pre-Euphrasian basilica as most of the items in the museum in the basement of the Euphrasian basilica.

At the ground level of the mosaic museum, a sarcophagus is laying in the middle of the entrance, while various carved tombstones are leaning against the wall (third photo). Though there are no explanations, it seems that they are all ancient Romans remains.

The mosaic museum is at the ground level of the bishop's palace (last photo). At the first level, some rooms of the bishop's palace are part of the museum but have been kept in their original state, while others host a collection of religious objects.
