    the site of zeugma is disappearing under the flows of birecik dam.
    the dam lake will be full up in 2005.
    most mosaics have been saved and stand now in gaziantep museum.

    archeologist seem very proud to receive a visit and show their excavations works.in oct.2004,new mosaics appear as you can see it on the pic.

    archeologic site is open from 8am to sunset,april to october.

    symbol of zeugma because of the mysterious look of her eyes.
    called "gypsy" for resemblance with gypsies...

    recently they discover it is "gaia",goddess of earth;considered in mythology as first element all gods ancestors have derived from.

    gaziantep museum:open daily from 9am to 4.30pm only!
