Officials in Syria have announced the discovery of a 1,600-year-old mosaic that depicts scenes from the Trojan War. The mosaic was found in the town of Rastan, near the city of Homs, on property that was purchased and then donated to the Syrian government by businessmen associated with the Nabu Museum in Lebanon. So far 1,300 square feet (120 square meters) of the mosaic has been uncovered, and it features panels with names and images of Greek soldiers from the Trojan War, and depictions from Roman mythology, including Amazon warriors and the god Neptune. Syrian archaeologists are unsure as of yet what type of building the mosaics were once a part of, but excavations are continuing.
