Pafos Mosaics

In old Pafos (“old” means the lower part of town, near the harbour) there are the remains of several huge Roman villas. There's not much left standing but a huge collection of mosaics has been excavated during the last decades. They are partly in the open, with wind and sun slowly wearing them down, but even when there is a protective cover they are invariably dusty and dirty. In comparison to some of the eye-catching mosaics we saw in Turkey (during our spring trip) we were a little disappointed. Anyway, here are five of the better ones.
