Product Description

Tyche mosaic was revealed at the excavation of the ancient Beit-Shean city walls, in one of the rooms at the “Sigma” plaza.
it is estimated to be from the sixth century.
In the mosaic Tyche – the roman goddess of luck and good fortune – is depicted as a woman with a crown on her head in the form of a crenellated and turreted wall, carrying a horn of plenty filled with fruit, and a palm tree – which is one of the symbols of Beit-Shean.
