A detailed view of the octagonal portion of the floor of the synagogue.  This octagon is at the exact center of the synagogue.

The numbers that are visible on the stones were placed there by the excavators at the beginning of the excavation of the synagogue so that they could be placed close to their original positions during reconstruction.
