1,700-Year-Old Mosaic Revealed, Restored In Israel

“The late-Roman-era mosaic floor, one of the largest and finest in Israel, was unveiled by the authorities last week for just the second time since it was discovered 13 years ago” in the town of Lod. Following two more years of conservation work (and the exhibit of one section at the Met Museum next year), “the entire mosaic is supposed to be returned to this patch of ground … and put on permanent display in a protected environment.”
