Samuel Lysons [1763 - 1819] was an English antiquarian and engraver who, published several works on antiquarian topics. He was one of the first archaeologists to investigate Roman sites in Britain, and specialized in the study of mosaics. The plates for this work were etched by Lysons himself from his own drawings, and the descriptive text in English and French were also his own work. He produced several works on the antiquities of Gloucestershire, and accounts of various mosaic payments in the West Country. The plates of this work are magnificent of their kind, and of a very high quality.
