LOD, Israel (AP) — Israel’s antiquities authority has unveiled a one,700-yr-aged mosaic ground that archaeologists identified last year although constructing a visitors’ center meant to display one more mosaic, discovered two many years before at the identical spot.
The authority said on Monday that the freshly discovered Roman-era mosaic steps 11 meters by thirteen meters (36 ft by forty two feet).
It paved the courtyard of a villa in an affluent community that stood during the Roman and Byzantine eras. The scenes include searching animals, fish, vases and birds.
Amir Gorzalczany, who directed the excavation, states the “good quality of the photographs portrayed in the mosaic signifies a highly produced inventive capability.”
The mosaics had been located in what is today the central Israeli metropolis of Lod.
