Over 40 years ago, a beautiful 6th century Mosaic floor was discovered on the seashore of Gaza, south of the present port area. In 1976, when the area of archeological excavations was enlarged, this mosaic floor was found to have been the only remaining part of an ancient Synagogue, and only part of the mosaic had survived. The remains discovered are witness of a large building constructed from east to west, with a central hall and two side halls on each side, a total of 5 long halls.
This was exceptional in comparison to other Synagogues of the same period, discovered in the Land of Israel, all of which attest to a flourishing Jewish community at the time. Israel uncovered mosaics dating to the second century BCE, while expansion of Greek culture - Hellenistic. During the Byzantine period, the Christians forbade Jews from synagogues decorate the outside.
The halls were separated one from another by rows of columns. Within the fragment of the Mosaic that remained at the western edge of the hall, a figure clothed in royal attire of the time, playing a harp, was discovered.
Above the figure, was a Hebrew inscription ''David''. The artist probably referred to King David, the poet and harp-player. Beside the figure of David, was a young lion, symbol of Judah, giraffe and snake, all seemingly listening to David's melody.Obverse Part of the Mosaic Floor of a 6th century CE Synagogue in Gaza, showing David playing his harp, the name "David" in ancient Hebrew script and border inscription "David with Harp, Gaza" in English and "David playing (the harp), Gaza" in Hebrew. Reverse Inscription "Ancient Mosaics of the Holy Land" in Hebrew and English, the metal weight and fineness and the Holy Land Mint Logo (the international logo of ICMC). Shipping
