Chapter Summary

This chapter contains the catalogue which constitutes the body of archaeological data assembled for the geographic area under consideration. It gathers and classifies information on villa sites, either partly or completely excavated or known only from surface finds and field surveys. Only villas of the elite (the term elite refers to moneyed elite and is by no means limited to senatorial or equestrian figures only) have been included in the chapter, that is to say rural or maritime establishments showing evidence of a residential part with some kind of luxurious features, such as mosaics, marble veneer, sculptures et similia. Only those villas once owned by members of the Roman or local elites, which at a later epoch became part of the imperial fiscus, have been included in the catalogue.

Keywords: archaeological data; field surveys; maritime villas; Roman elites; rural villas; villa sites
