Diakonikon-Baptistery Mosaic

With its hunting and pastoral scenes of colourful almost intact tesserae, its Greek inscriptions stating the building's function as “diakonikon”, its precise date (corresponding to August 530 A.D.), and even the name of its creators, the mosaicists Soel, Kaium, and Elias, it is one of the most remarkable Byzantine mosaics in Jordan.
