Byzantine mosaics. These mosaics were built in the ancient city of Edessa in what is now Sanliurfa, Turkey. They were uncovered at an archaeological site in the Haleplibahce district of the city. The mosaics date from the 5th and 6th centuries, when the city was under Byzantine rule, and the palace in which they were found is thought to have belonged to a high-ranking administrator of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium). This mosaic depicts an African man and zebra. Such scenes are depicted in mosaics in Palestine, but this is the first time they have been found in Turkey. Photographed in 2009.
