To an archaeologist this is the discovery of the Holy Grail or winning the lottery. I can only imagine Fryni Hadjichristofi’s overjoyed response when the archaeologist went with her instincts; her gut feeling. A sight for sore eyes indeed.
Hadjichristofi, an archaeologist with Cyprus’ Department of Antiquities, and her seven-person crew found the mosaic last year while working on a site about 20 miles from Nicosia, Cyprus’ capital.
Every once in a while our instincts prove to be a blessing.
