This article serves as an appendix to a compilation of research which has been published on the residential dwellings in the Roman towns of modern Tunisia (1st6th c. A.D.).

From an architectural/structural point of view, these houses are little different from what is known of the aristocratic residences of preceding chronological phases, showing a preference for multiple large reception rooms. However, their figured mosaics cover new thematic areas (and related sub-areas and subjects) connected to the self-representational needs of the ruling social class.
