A Day at Antakya Archaeological Museum

"Mosaic of Soteria"

Hello friends, I would like to share a few pictures of Antakya Archaeological Museum which is in Hatay province of Turkey. It's one of the biggest mosaic museums.

I traveled to Hatay in 2008 and I took this pictures. It was pretty fun and I was really impressed by mosaics. They are very big and amazing.

"The Roman Emperor Lucius Verus"

Statues and mosaics are from the second to fifth centuries AD.

If you go to Turkey, you should definitely visit the museum. I'm sure that you will be amazed the area not only the museum. There are lots of things to do in the area.

I drew this shot. I like the composition.

"Head of Satyr" found in Antioch.
