Newly discovered Byzantine mosaics show Amazons hunting, a rare scene in Amazon iconography, which usually depicts the warriors fighting battles. Here Queen Melanippe (whose name is written above her) attacks a lion with her lance. (Pasquale Sorrentino)I rather like the goofy-looking horse. From an article about Byzantine mosaics in the Jan/Feb 2010 issue of Archaeology.
