The excavation was conducted by the Institute of Archaeology at Hebrew University. Additional work was carried out in the synagogue area during the summers of 1994, 1996 and 1997. The first two seasons were directed jointly by Ehud Netzer and Zeev Weiss, while the last two seasons were conducted under the sole direction of Weiss. The photos of the mosaic were taken by Gabi Laron and the drawings are by M. Kaplan and Pnina Arad. Translation of the Greek dedication inscription was done with collaboration of Dr. Leah Di Segni. For more on the mosaic, see Weiss and Netzer, Promise and Redemption, A Synagogue Mosaic from Sepphoris (Jerusalem: Israel Museum, 1996); and Weiss and Netzer, “The Sepphoris Synagogue: A New Look at Synagogue Art and Architecture in the Byzantine Period,” in Eric M.
