At the mosaic museum at the Church of the Virgin is an information board informing you that this mosaic is from the baths of Herod the Great's palace at Mukawir - about half an hours drive away - on a hilltop overlooking the Dead Sea - apparently where John the Baptist was beheaded at the request of Salome and her mother.
The information board tells you that this piece of mosaic is from the 1st BC and is the most ancient in Jordan. and also gives you an interesting floor plan of the palace site.
Thats an exciting bit of the 'oldest' of something to add to our fanatic about all things ancient VT belt!
