Mosaic of Apollo found in Roman tunnel

A mosaic-covered wall has been found in a tunnel built to support Trajan’s Baths.

Archaeologists and city officials unveiled the recent find to reporters Friday on the Oppian Hill.

The mosaic-covered wall is 16 meters (53 feet) wide and at least 2 meters (6.6 feet) high. Officials think the wall continues down some 8 meters (26.5 feet) more.
