Trenches-Turkey-Zeugma-Mosaics

Continuing excavations in the House of the Muses at Zeugma in southeastern Turkey have uncovered even more spectacular Roman mosaics, as well as more of the house’s well-preserved architecture. In one of the newly discovered rooms, archaeologists uncovered a mosaic pavement depicting four young women framed by elaborate patterns. Although not identified by any inscriptions, the women may represent heroines from Greek mythology.
