Antakya dec 2008 6027.jpg

One of several pieces in the garden. I have been reliably informed it is a 4th century AD mosaic representing an athlete, Neikostratos, from the town of Aigai. Three centuries before the mosaic was made he became famous for being the victor in both wrestling and pankration at the Olympic Games on a single day, a feat no on repeated in the following ages.
