A Mosaic with Inscription

DATE
Notes: Late 5th to early 6th century

This large mosaic, possibly from an ancient church in Syria, features a Greek inscription at its center commemorating a dedication. It reads: “At the time when our most holy and most reverend archbishop Eirenaeus had been installed, the deacon decorated this space with mosaics in honor of Patricius.”

This mosaic captures a moment in ecclesiastical history, linking religious leaders to their contributions in art and architecture.
