There seems to be two camps about this one. Some prefer to mosaic before classification, others prefer to classify the images before mossaicking. Personally, I would classify the images first, then mosaic them.

Have a look at the discussions on this page and you'll find arguments for and against both methods. Generally, they state that you should classify first, then mosaic.

Try both options and see which gives you the best results.
