Wall Painting From 11th Century B.C. Found in Syria

Monday, October 08, 2007

DAMASCUS, Syria �  Archaeologists discovered a wall painting believed to be from the 11th century B.C. in northern Syria, the country's official news agency, SANA, reported Monday.

Youssef Kenjo, the head of excavations in the Aleppo Archaeological Directorate, told SANA that the white, black and red painting was of "geometric shapes, squares and rectangles painted in natural dye."

It was discovered on a wall in a house at Jaadet Al-Maghara, on the Euphrates River some 280 miles north of Damascus. It did not say when the painting was found.

The house where the painting was found appeared to be used for "religious rituals and social occasions," Kenjo added.

No other details were immediately available.
