Archaeologists with the Israel Antiquities Authority announced in February 2018 the discovery of a rare, colorful 1,800-year old Roman era mosaic in Caesarea. The well-preserved mosaic was uncovered during the excavation of a Byzantine-era building, which had been built approximately 300 years after the mosaic underneath it was made. Measuring 3.5 meters by 8 meters, the mosaic includes a depiction of three men wearing togas as well as a damaged Greek inscription. The mosaic is extremely detailed, with an estimated 12,000 stones per square meter.
