A picture of a (lightly) carve menorah that was carved into the cardo.  Note the tripod at its base, its seven branches, and maybe even the "flames" at the top of each of the branches.  This obviously indicates a Jewish presence in the city.

Early in the second century AD the city expanded eastward and boasted an impressive network of streets arranged in a grid, with two colonnaded streets, the cardo and decumanus, at its center.  This area included public buildings, shops, residences, and religious structures.  Many mosaics were found inside of these structures.
