The floors of Roman houses were often richly decorated with mosaics made from stone or glass of different colours, known as tesserae. These mosaics usually captured scenes of history and everyday life. Some of these buildings were held up by huge columns which had been copied from Greek architecture.
This Roman column pin badge is made from lead-free pewter and supplied on a pin with a clasp. The information card is full colour on the front and has historical information about Minerva, Roman mosaics and Roman coins on the reverse.
