Afternoon Lecture: Dechiphering the Lod Mosaic

Sunday, Feb 10, 2013 2:00p
Penn Museum Philadelphia, PA

Highway construction in Lod, Israel in 1966 unearthed a large and well-preserved Roman mosaic that probably once decorated a large audience room. The mosaic dates to circa 300 CE and features a kind of arena of ferocious animals, including a lion and lioness, an elephant, a giraffe, a rhinoceros, a tiger, and a wild bull. In this lecture, Dr. C. Brian Rose, Curator-in-Charge, Mediterranean Section, explores why decorative motifs of this kind were held in such high esteem during the Roman Empire.
