A 1,600-year-old virtually intact Roman-era mosaic has been discovered in central Syria, SIA reports, citing foreign media.

The mosaic, measuring 20 x 6m, was found under a building in Rastan near Homs, which was held by rebels in the civil war until 2018.

Showing mythical scenes including the Trojan and Amazon wars, it is said to be the rarest of its kind.

Many of Syria's archaeological treasures have been damaged after more than a decade of war.

But the latest find is being described as the most important archaeological discovery since the start of the conflict in 2011.
