Sabratha. Libya. Close up view of the some of the elaborate details of the magnificent mosaic that once occupied the central nave Basilica of Justinian. The mosaic shows an acanthus calyx from which vine branches spread out with a wealth of birds pecking at the grapes of salvation. The mosaic was moved from the ruined basilica to the specially built section of the Roman museum. The mosaics date from after AD533 and craftsmen’s who created them are believed to been from the eastern Mediterranean.
