This Greco-Roman mosaic of what is known as the Zeugma Gypsy Girl is about 2,000 years old. It was found near (lat/lon 37.0574, 37.8705) in 1999 before a new dam on the Euphrates River flooded the area. I have smoothed out the mosaic stones to better reveal the wary emotion of the young woman. Note the cap she is wearing appears to be a Phrygian cap which is a classic symbol of liberty also seen in the US Senate’s seal.

This picture is another view of liberty and exploitation.
