Roman Mosaic Vichten

The municipality of Vichten has gained international fame in 1995 with the discovery of a roman mosaic, which depicts Homer in the circle of the nine muses. The mosaic created around 240 AD shows the muses in the order defined by the Greek author Hesiod 700 BC. The mosaic was manufactured in a workshop in Trier and covered the floor of the reception hall of a Gallo-Roman villa. A copy of the mosaic is located between the church and the town hall.
