4th century mosaic excavated at Yavne

DECORATIVE ART: 4th Century Mosaic Uncovered in Yavne Excavations (David Israel, The Jewish Press).
A mosaic floor from about 1,600 years ago that was discovered in archaeological excavations in the city of Yavne, 15 miles south of Tel Aviv, will be put on public display at the city’s cultural center, in a joint initiative launched by Yavne municipality, the Israel Antiquities Authority, and the Israel Land Authority.
