20 Description This mosaic pavement is situated in the southernmost aisle of the Gaza synagogue, oriented from east to west, following the synagogue's orientation. The mosaic's border consists of a double-guilloche pattern, and within this border is an elongated rectangle, forming a single decorated with inhabited vine-scrolls.The medallions, which are arranged in eleven rows of three, with the first row at the top, in the east, and the eleventh at the bottom, in the west, are formed by vine-scrolls. Vine leaves, tendrils and grape clusters are interspersed throughout the background of the panel. They appear both within the frames of the medallions and in the spaces formed between them. A row of birds alternates with a row of four-legged animals, the uppermost row being occupied by depictions of birds. The outer medallions in each row usually depict the same animal, facing the center, and a different animal, of the same species, in the row's central medallion. The central medallion of the ninth row from the top has a dedicatory inscription. Starting from the left medallion of the first row from the top, these are the animals depicted: three birds (two ducks?); two leopards and a horse; three birds (two cranes?); two foxes (hunting-dogs?) and a goat (a deer?); two birds (partridges?) and a bird in a cage; two giraffes and a zebra; two birds (flamingos?) (the central medallion is destroyed); a lioness with a cub, a donkey and a tigress; two birds (peacocks?) and an inscription in the central medallion; a bear and a stag; a bird. Due to the damage caused to the western part of the mosaic, it is impossible to determine whether the vine scrolls rose from an amphora or an acanthus leaf.

25 Material/Technique
The tesserae are made of limestone, marble, glass and clay.
They are laid in curved lines within the figures and forming the scrolls, and in straight parallel lines in the background.
The figures' outline consists of one line of black tesserae. The figures, scrolls, grapes and leaves are surrounded by one line of white tesserae.
The average number of tesserae in 10cm2 is (10x10). The highest density is found in the right medallion, second from the top,
in the leopard's paws, as well as in the right medallion, sixth from the top, in the giraffe's legs, where the density equals (14x16).
The lowest density is found in the left medallion, fifth from the top, in the bird's body, where the density equals (7x8).
Various hues of red, including burgundy, brick-red and pink, yellow, including ochre, and green are used,
besides the many hues of white and black, which include many shades of gray, ranging from bluish to brownish gray.

20 Description he medallion and octagon panel is placed at the northern end of the nave, below the zodiac panel. The panel is composed of nine horizontal lines in which a line of three octagons is followed by a line of two medallions, depicting animals and objects (occasionally accompanied by flowers); each octagon is formed by two interlaced hexagons. There are rhombuses among the medallions and octagons. Most of the animals are depicted in profile and oriented towards the central vertical line. The inner part of the panel frame is surrounded by semicircles depicting bunches of grapes with vine leaves. Two of the semicircles situated in the western part of the frame depict different motifs: one a leaf (fig?) flanked by carobs, the other an ethrog flanked by apples and figs. All the depictions situated in the semicircle patterns face outwards. At the corners of the panel triangles contain a conch pattern. The first horizontal row from the lower part of the panel is composed of three octagons: in the centre a running animal with its tail curled over its back; to the right a running lion, with the outline of its mane and a curled tail visible; to the left a bird standing on a small tree, facing left. The second horizontal row consists of two medallions which depict two birds facing each other. The third row is composed of three octagons: in the centre a goblet with a triangular base; to the right a cock standing facing left, and to the left a hare on a small tree facing right. The fourth row consists of two medallions: to the right a running hare, facing left; the left octagon is damaged. The fifth row is composed of three octagons: to the right an animal with a broad tail and pointed ears facing left; to the left an animal in a similar pose with upcurved tail, facing right; the sixth row consits of two medallions: to the right a bird facing left. The left octagon was damaged. The seventh row is composed of three octagons: to the right a one-handled basket of fruit; the other two octagons were damaged. The last row is composed of three octagons: in the center a bird in a cage, facing right; to the right an octopod, portrayed frontally. The panel is framed by two parallel lines.

20 Description The medallion and octagon panel is placed at the northern end of the nave, below the zodiac panel. The panel is composed of nine horizontal lines in which a line of three octagons is followed by a line of two medallions, depicting animals and objects (occasionally accompanied by flowers); each octagon is formed by two interlaced hexagons. There are rhombuses among the medallions and octagons. Most of the animals are depicted in profile and oriented towards the central vertical line. The inner part of the panel frame is surrounded by semicircles depicting bunches of grapes with vine leaves. Two of the semicircles situated in the western part of the frame depict different motifs: one a leaf (fig?) flanked by carobs, the other an ethrog flanked by apples and figs. All the depictions situated in the semicircle patterns face outwards. At the corners of the panel triangles contain a conch pattern. The first horizontal row from the lower part of the panel is composed of three octagons: in the centre a running animal with its tail curled over its back; to the right a running lion, with the outline of its mane and a curled tail visible; to the left a bird standing on a small tree, facing left. The second horizontal row consists of two medallions which depict two birds facing each other. The third row is composed of three octagons: in the centre a goblet with a triangular base; to the right a cock standing facing left, and to the left a hare on a small tree facing right. The fourth row consists of two medallions: to the right a running hare, facing left; the left octagon is damaged. The fifth row is composed of three octagons: to the right an animal with a broad tail and pointed ears facing left; to the left an animal in a similar pose with upcurved tail, facing right; the sixth row consits of two medallions: to the right a bird facing left. The left octagon was damaged. The seventh row is composed of three octagons: to the right a one-handled basket of fruit; the other two octagons were damaged. The last row is composed of three octagons: in the center a bird in a cage, facing right; to the right an octopod, portrayed frontally. The panel is framed by two parallel lines.

20 Description The medallion and octagon panel is placed at the northern end of the nave, below the zodiac panel. The panel is composed of nine horizontal lines in which a line of three octagons is followed by a line of two medallions, depicting animals and objects (occasionally accompanied by flowers); each octagon is formed by two interlaced hexagons. There are rhombuses among the medallions and octagons. Most of the animals are depicted in profile and oriented towards the central vertical line. The inner part of the panel frame is surrounded by semicircles depicting bunches of grapes with vine leaves. Two of the semicircles situated in the western part of the frame depict different motifs: one a leaf (fig?) flanked by carobs, the other an ethrog flanked by apples and figs. All the depictions situated in the semicircle patterns face outwards. At the corners of the panel triangles contain a conch pattern. The first horizontal row from the lower part of the panel is composed of three octagons: in the centre a running animal with its tail curled over its back; to the right a running lion, with the outline of its mane and a curled tail visible; to the left a bird standing on a small tree, facing left. The second horizontal row consists of two medallions which depict two birds facing each other. The third row is composed of three octagons: in the centre a goblet with a triangular base; to the right a cock standing facing left, and to the left a hare on a small tree facing right. The fourth row consists of two medallions: to the right a running hare, facing left; the left octagon is damaged. The fifth row is composed of three octagons: to the right an animal with a broad tail and pointed ears facing left; to the left an animal in a similar pose with upcurved tail, facing right; the sixth row consits of two medallions: to the right a bird facing left. The left octagon was damaged. The seventh row is composed of three octagons: to the right a one-handled basket of fruit; the other two octagons were damaged. The last row is composed of three octagons: in the center a bird in a cage, facing right; to the right an octopod, portrayed frontally. The panel is framed by two parallel lines.
