Caption: Byzantine mosaic restoration. Archaeologist restoring a Byzantine mosaic in the ancient city of Edessa in what is now Sanliurfa, Turkey. This mosaic was uncovered at an archaeological site in the Haleplibahce district of the city. It dates from the 5th and 6th centuries, when the city was under Byzantine rule, and the palace in which it was found is thought to have belonged to a high-ranking administrator of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium). This mosaic depicts the centaur Chiron (name at bottom), a figure from Greek and Roman mythology. Photographed in 2009.
