Deeply coloured and opaque glass was particularly fashionable in the early Roman centuries and several studies focused on translucent deeply coloured vessels, but few of them combine archaeological and archaeometric data obtained on mosaic glass, due the high aesthetic quality of the exemplars that often does not allow sampling. The finding of highly fragmented glass mosaic samples in the Domus of Tito Macro in Aquileia (Italy) is a valuable opportunity to investigate the production technologies of these complex artefacts, by means of an interdisciplinary approach. Therefore, this contribution presents the results of the archaeological and archaeometric characterisation of five mosaic glass artefacts dated to the early Roman times.
