First of all I must thank blogger A Brit Greek for sending me these pictures she took last year. The mosaics illustrated are from ancient Dion in Pieria, Greece. I never got round to posting them until now. Feels like "old times" here in Mosaicology when I first started this blog and was mainly focused on history and places.
The most prominent attraction of the region however is none other than Olympus mountain.

The driving distance from Dion to main city Thessaloniki is 59 miles / 94 km.
I will end this post with something that made me happy. I stumbled upon a blog of the city council of Dion-Olympos where there was a post on mosaic courses held this summer.
I loved the picture - mosaic making process at its best! and I am sharing it with you!!!
