This article presents two hitherto unpublished mosaics with Old Syriac inscriptions. The two mosaics, apparently belonging to a larger panel, were published in the catalog of an antiquity auction fifteen years ago, accompanied by brief captions . Both the iconography of the mosaics and the presence of Old Syriac inscriptions testify to a very much plausible provenance of the two artefacts from the region of the ancient city of Edessa in Osrhoene (modern Şanlıurfa, in south-eastern Turkey).

Abstract

This article presents two hitherto unpublished mosaics with Old Syriac inscriptions. The two mosaics, apparently belonging to a larger panel, were published in the catalog of an antiquity auction fifteen years ago, accompanied by brief captions . Both the iconography of the mosaics and the presence of Old Syriac inscriptions testify to a very much plausible provenance of the two artefacts from the region of the ancient city of Edessa in Osrhoene (modern Şanlıurfa, in south-eastern Turkey).
