Tunisian synagogue mosaics

DECORATIVE ART: Jewish mosaics from Roman Tunisia at the Brooklyn Museum (Mary Harrsch, Roman Times Blog). Nice photos. The synagogue was in Naro (present-day Hammam Lif).

I note an exhibition of these mosaics back in 2008. See here and links. For more on Tunisian Jewish antiquities, see here and links.
