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.

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 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 The panel representing the zodiac wheel with Helios and the seasons, is situated at the centre of the nave, between the panels of the sanctuary implements to the south and the dedicatory inscription to the north. The subject is depicted in two concentric circles within a rectangular frame. The inner circle depicts Helios; the twelve signs of the zodiac are enclosed in segments in the outer circle. Each sign is identified by a Hebrew inscription. They are arranged counterclockwise and face the centre. Twisted ribbons forming spaced circles surround the two concentric circles and the segments. The four seasons appear in the spandrels of the rectangular panel. The seasons are represented as female busts, facing the centre. Each season is identified by a Hebrew inscription and by special attributes.

The density of tesserae per 10cm2 is not uniform in the panel. The average number of tesserae in the background is 10x11, while
a higher number is noticeble in the bodies of the figures (11x12)-(12x13). The highest density can be seen in the figures' heads
(13x14)-(13X15). Two depictions have an exceptionally high density: Virgin (16x13), Libra (14x16.5). The colours of tesserae are white
and black, with shades of gray, ochre, yellow, red, pink, brown, green, and orange.
