Taucheira: Greek port in the Cyrenaica, also known as Arsinoe.
North of Taucheira/Arsinoe's main street, opposite the Byzantine fort, was the palace, where the governor must have resided. In its church some lovely mosaics were discovered. Today, they are exposed to the sun and wind. However, a lizard, a tree (or sun flowers?), a fruit basket, a hare, a wolf or dog, a bird, some fish on a plate, and a pelican can still be recognized.
