This ritual space stands out due to its mosaic floor that is made of thousands of colored tesserae. A white background, framed by a black meander pattern surrounded by an orange rectangle, emphasizes the image of a rosette in the central panel, whose eight petals alternate between black and white. The geometric and floral design is very similar to the mosaic found in the synagogue, so it is quite possible that the artist or the workshop were the same.
During the reign of Herod the Great, impressive construct projects took place, which were influenced by the Greco-Roman decoration style. Examples can be found at Masada, Jericho, Herodium, Caesarea Maritima, and in some houses of the upper city of Jerusalem. During the Second Temple period, despite foreign cultural influence, local customs were respected. Decorative elements and designs are characterized by the lack of images of animate creatures and symbolism based on the religious prohibition of representations of G-d or other deities. This mosaic exemplifies this prohibition.
