Pinsteps. Mosaic of Madaba, Old City Jerusalem

Not only the excavations of Jerusalem but also other archeological finds make it possible to restore the appearance of the Old City. For example, we can see a piece of mosaic found in the city of Madaba in Jordan. In the upper left corner is written in Greek: Agiapolis Jerusalem. This mosaic is a painting of the holy city of Jerusalem as made on the mosaic floor of the monastery dining room from the 5th century AD. In the center of the town, there is an axis with red-tiled roofs on both sides. West of this axis, one can identify a staircase that leads to the church with a tiled roof and the dome of the great church of the Holy Sepulcher. Two main arteries cross the city from left to right. These are the two Cardo streets - one at the upper town and the other at the lower.
