Mosaic Floor with Intersecting Circles and Crosses

Although a modern viewer might be tempted to associate this mosaic of intersecting circles and crosses with one of Beth Shean’s churches, the motif occurs in a variety of contexts and might not have a specifically Christian association. Without a context for the work, we are unable to fully determine its significance.
