A detailed history of the city of Aphrodisias is only just beginning to emerge as the results of many years of excavations are gradually analyzed. The excavated physical remains of the city show many phases of its life, from prehistoric to Greek Roman and Byzantine. Throughout these centuries many changes took place. Even the name of the city was changed from Aphrodisias to Stauropolis, later to Caria, and eventually, in modern Turkish, to Geyre. The mosaic pavements of Aphrodisias in Caria are not numerous, but they do cover a wide time span, ranging from the third century BC to the middle of the fifth century AD, a period of approximately seven centuries. They thus provide a representative sampling of an active and thriving commerce in the production of mosaic pavements, both opus sectile and tessellated.
