A rare 1,500-year-old mosaic discovered in Israel that unusually depicts a map with streets and buildings will be revealed for the first time tomorrow.
Painstakingly restored, the mosaic measures about 3.5 meters (11.4 feet) by 3.5 meters and was found two years ago in an industrial park in the southern Israeli town of Kiryat Gat.
According to the Israel Antiquities Authority, it adorned the floor of a church dating to the Byzantine period. The church did not survive, but the mosaic was excavated and moved for restoration.
