The architectural ornament of Diocletian's Palace at Split
A magnificent treasure house for a study in decoration, no other extant Roman monument has such rich examples of ornament from a single building campaign. McNally grabs the opportunity to consider the functions of rare fragments in situ to find a grand decorative scheme and a relationship with structure. This should also provide fixed points of comparison for other buildings at a defined period (early fourth century). Appendix dealing with the frieze inside the mausoleum, and the coffers of the Temple of jupiter.
