MOSAIC UNCOVERED IN LOD – While excavating in the Neve Yerek neighborhood of Lod to prepare the ground for construction of a visitors’ center, a new colorful mosaic was found. The mosaic is believed to have been used as the courtyard pavement for the villa that once stood on this space. Some 1,700 years ago, another mosaic was found in this same area, which once served as the villa’s living room floor. In the current excavations, the southern part of the complex was exposed, which included the magnificent courtyard and mosaic. The scenes in this mosaic depict imagery of hunting, fish, baskets with flowers, vases and birds. In light of the new discoveries, this part of the villa will also be incorporated in the visitor center.
