Moses and the Burning Bush, Moses receives the Tablets of the LawMoses reading the TorahMoses at Mount Nebo - Dura-Europos synagogue, Syria, c. 244 CE. Tempera over plaster. One of the oldest synagogues in the world, the Dura-Europos synagogue preserves some of the most precious and unique examples of Jewish art in history. These four portraits of Moses are found on the center of the synagogue’s western wall, above the Torah niche. Note his depiction with a square halo.

This Roman shield was found in the city of Dura Europos. The city is located several thousand kilometers from Rome and was a commercial enclave located in present-day Syria. It was founded by Greeks in the interior of the Persian territory, a few years after the passage of Alexander the Great, and later became part of Rome, perhaps because of its strategic location. During the Roman occupation, at the time of the high Roman Empire, some Roman soldier must have been forgotten this beautiful shield that happened to be the best preserved of this type that we have. It is impressive to see him in almost all his splendor and imagine that a soldier once carried him as part of his military supplies.
