Detail view of floor mosaic, featuring the head of Medusa, at one of the Terrace Houses at Ephesus, Turkey. "This complex comprises the largest collection of ancient mosaic floors from the Roman period in Western Turkey. Most of the mosaics, dating from the beginning of the 1st century to the first half of the 3rd century AD, feature geometric patterns using small black and white stones - a clear link with mosaics from Italy. Few multicolored and figurative mosaics depict Triton, Nereids, Dionysos, Medusa, and a lion,"--Terrace Houses in Ephesus, from Turkish Archaeology News website.
