Abstract :
In the last few years, a new project focused on the island of Capri has improved our knowledge about the archeological record of the area. The research has actually started from the archivistic record, discovering new papers about the excavation and the transportation of at least three different marble floors. Two of them are already known and still visible in their actual location, the last instead is a totally new find, hitherto not recognizable in any of the visible marble floors reused in the royal palaces of Naples. The new documents improve our knowledge of the location and time of the discoveries, and help us in proposing an hypothetical reconstruction of the lost floor.
