A taste of the exhibition
The exhibition hall is now spacious enough to hold the freshly restored mosaics and wall paintings from the governor's palace excavations. The visitors can also see monumental statues which formerly stood in sanctuaries, the dolphin fountain or a reconstruction of a large ornamental stone vessel (crater). These objects all reflect the luxurious nature of the palace's interior. continue
