View of a portion of a mosaic found in the apodyterium, dressing room, of the Roman Bath complex of the palace at Machaerus.  This mosaic probably dates to the reign of Herod the Great (37–4 B.C.) and has some similarities to those found in his palaces at Masada, on the west side of the Dead Sea.  Note the circle enclosed in a square and the rolling wave design.

This is the oldest mosaic discovered in Jordan to–date.  It is now housed in the museum in Madaba.
