Lod Mosaic in Venice

THIS MOSAIC GETS AROUND: Roman mosaic floor from Lod on view in Venice. An ancient Roman mosaic floor from Lod in Israel is currently exhibited in Venice by Fondazione Giorgio Cini in collaboration with the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Shelby White and Leon Levy Lod Mosaic Center (M.Apelblat, The Brussells Times).
The Lod Mosaic will be on view until 10 January 2016 at the exhibition centre on the Island of San Giorgio Maggiore.

This is the last European stop in an international tour which included United Kingdom, France, Germany and Russia. On its return to Israel it will be exhibited in a visitor centre to be built in Lod.

Background here with many links. Another ancient mosaic has recently been discovered at Lod as well.
