More on those Syriac mosaics

EPIGRAPHY AND DECORATIVE ART: Archaeologists unearth stunning mosaics in ancient church in Turkey. Excavation begins for mosaics belonging to 1600-year-old church located in southeastern Mardin province (YeniṢafak). I noted the announcement of this discovery here. I don't see any new information in this article, but it does have a photo of a different mosaic at the site. I have not yet seen photos of the inscriptions.
