A man unveils Greek inscriptions as he cleans a Byzantine mosaic floor that decorated a monastery and that was discovered during infrastructure work in the Israeli Bedouin village of Hura in the Northern part of the Negev on April 1, 2014. The mosaics, dated from the end of the 6th century AD, were uncovered during the construction of a new road.
