ON THE COVER: An ancient fisherman wades with his new catch in the Nile River in a newly discovered addition to the rich mosaic heritage of Sepphoris. This elaborately decorated 20-by-22 foot floor dating to the fifth or sixth century A.D. is one of the recent finds that keep archaeologists returning to the site after years of excavation. Authors Ehud Netzer and Zeev Weiss describe the importance of the floor in “New Mosaic Art from Sepphoris.”
