New ancient mosaic discovery in Zappeion (Athens) in Greece


I have just stumbled upon an article in Greek published on 23 June 2013 about a discovery of an ancient Roman times mosaic floor in Athens. The mosaic has survived in parts and it features various geometrical shapes with vine leaves and other vegetal motifs. It's a small portion of a luxurious villa which apparently belonged to an important ruler.
