  1. Gorgeous mosaics! I need to go to NY soon to see the Lod mosaic, or try to get the Dallas museum to bring it here.

  2. I actually found about the discovery from Roman Archeology blog which you will love and then immediately dropped a comment over at MOSAIC ART NOW blog. Nancie wrote a wonderful post on the discovery. I really miss going to museums. Hope you make it.
