Antakya Museum 7525

This is called the Yakto Mosaic, inv. 1016. It's fifth century AD, from Harbiye. The central figure is a woman, representing the Great Spirit or Megalopsychia. The hunters are - named - mythological figures.

Around the mosaic is a border with scenes of daily life in ancient Antioch.
