SOME ANCIENT MOSAICS are to go on exhibit at Ben Gurion Airport:
Ancient mosaic to greet airport arrivals (Ha'aretz)
By Zohar Blumenkrantz

Ancient mosaics that have been discovered across the country in archaeological digs are to appear as artistic pieces in the new terminal of Ben-Gurion International Airport. The Airports Authority is to pay NIS 460,000 to the Israel Antiquities Authority for the pleasure.


One of the exhibits will be a mosaic from the 5th or 6th century, unearthed in Bet Shean, with an inscription in Greek, "Blessed are you in your arriving, and blessed are you in your leaving."
