Umm al-Rasas

The large mosaic in the center is surrounded by a border with the names of ten towns and cities; Hagia Polis (Jerusalem) for example, and natural decorative elements such as birds and trees. Near the entrance is a mosaic with the names of the notables who presumably contributed to the building of the church. All is written in Greek.
