Another interesting find:



The multicolored mosaic pavement was unearthed during archaeological excavations directed by IAA archaeologist Dr. Avishag Reiss.

Dated to the Byzantine period (4th-5th century CE), it is decorated with colorful geometric motifs, and has a black rectangular frame.

“The pavement may have been part of a splendid residential building in a wealthy neighborhood adjacent to the industrial zone,” IAA archaeologists said.

“At first, we did not realize that the floor is multicolored,” they added.
