We were here on our Gailee trip.  There are suggestions that when this Roman regional capital began to be rebuilt from 3 BC this might have attracted general builders like Joseph to come to live in near by Nazareth (see here on the hill in the distance).

The Roman streets still have cart marks visible.

But the glory of the place is its mosaics, of which this Pisces is only one tiny example.

The left hand side of this picture shows mosaic in the state in which it was found as a result of earthquake.  The right hand side shows it restored and level.
