Hama Museum: Roman & Byzantine Mosaics

Dick Osseman has very kindly allowed us to use his photos of Hama Museum (see his album). We decided to post more images, because all reports suggests that Hama Museum, like Homs Museum, has been looted. And then destroyed.

Late Antique or Byzantine mosaic of an enthroned man labelled "Adam" (presumably from a church, possibly from a synagogue):



Roman mosaic of women playing an assortment of musical instruments, with small erotes. Masks, erotes and animals in the border frieze:
