ON THE COVER: A forlorn Tyche, the goddess of fortune. This mosaic portrait of Tyche wearing a crown with crenelated walls and turrets once greeted ancient inhabitants of Beth-Shean, but thieves stole the mosaic in the dead of night in June 1989. Happily, many other treasures from Beth-Shean are being rediscovered and restored, as illustrated in “Glorious Beth-Shean.”
