Abstract

Two salvage excavations carried out in Narbonne bring testimonies concerning dwellings in the early Empire in the center of the town and the northeast district. Two halls with tiled floors of 'opus sectile' were discovered. One of them contained fragments of painted coatings which made it possible to determine the ornamental pattern of a vault. The house which it is part of was built on a subterranean construction which could date back to the Augustan age and was destroyed by a violent fire in the late 2nd century or in the early 3rd century.
