A mosaic from Kourion

This is yet another mosaic from Kourin, from the 3rd or 4th century AD, one depicting a woman in a medallion. She's holding a Roman messuring rod in her measuring right hand and we can see the text ΚΤΙΣΙΣ (Ktisis, the C is how Σ looked during this period), which means foundation or creation.
