Theodorias pictures
Theodorias (Qasr Libya, Libya)

Title: Mosaic floor from the secondary room of the church
Description: A nilotic scene, left part, with complete borders and inscriptions. In the center a crocodile attacks a cow.
The insciption in the center means: "the building was completed in the third year of the indiction by Theodorus, the new bishop". Unfortunately in the other inscripton on the other mosaic, made by the same artists, was made in the same third year (539), by bishop Macarius. Probably, Theodorus was successor of Macarius died in the same year.
