Collection(s)The building must date from the end of the 2nd century AD. It was enlarged and extended during the following centuries. The pavement was carried out during the 4th century and the whole assemblage, successively repaired, functioned up to the early 7th century. The mosaic pavement building lies on terrace B. Only 850 sq.m. of the pavement has been preserved. Terrace A represents the ancient dwelling level, while terrace C constitutes the storehouse floor (11 vaulted ceiling rooms). On the same storey, close to the building, there are a series of houses that used to be workshops. Terrace D represents the storey with other storehouses for merchandise. They are situated right opposite the docks of the ancient port and currently lie under the sea level. The terraces used to communicate through a staircase with wide high limestone steps. The museum shelters collections of merchandise from ships, found in the storehouses: anchors, ingots, weights, amphorae with dyes and resins, lamps, statuettes, goods from sunk ships, marble veneering, polychrome mosaic, pillar heads. In the former storehouses are displayed epigraphic monuments discovered in different places in Dobrudja.
