Marvelous menagerie: A Roman mosaic from Lod

Post by MichelleH » Tue Apr 05, 2011 9:15 am

A large and extraordinarily detailed floor mosaic was recently lifted from its site and fully conserved. Unearthed in 1996 during rescue excavations in Lod – ancient Diospolis – Israel, it is currently the subject of a touring exhibition, prior to returning to a custom built museum.
