Mo’ saics

The Hatay Archaeology Museum is famous for its nifty sarcophagus and fantastic mosaics. It’s actually fairly small (three rooms, to be exact -the rest was closed for restoration), but what it lacks in quantity of items, it made up for in quantity of awkward interactions with museum guards, who found our group’s need to take selfies in front of the mosaics endlessly fascinating. Anyway, here are the latest photos that are part of my growing obsession with mosaics.

I am not really sure what the deal with these rams is, but I thought you should meet them.

I almost forgot the sarcophagus.
