Xanthos mosaics unprotected

The mosaics in the ancient city of Xanthos in the southern province of Antalya's Kaş district, are now unprotected. The magnificent mosaics had a water-resistant geotextile barrier during the time of the former president of excavations. But as the barrier eroded, the mosaics are now exposed to the elements of nature.

A part of the royal palace where the Greek warrior-king Alexander the Great (356-323 BC) was born and raised will be restored after the study was approved by the Central Archaeological Council.
