  =  Mosaic floor is 36 feet long and 13 feet wide and was discovered just 19 miles from the capital Nicosia[/li][/list]
  =  Experts believe it once belonged to a nobleman and wealthy person while Cyprus was under Roman rule
  =  Four charioteers being drawn by four horses are believed to represent factions of ancient Rome
  =  Farmer first discovered a piece of the floor in 1938, but digging did not start for another 80 years [/li][/list]


Archaeologists have uncovered a 36-foot mosaic floor depicting scenes of ancient chariot races in the Roman hippodrome.
Dating back to the 4th century, this magnificent artifact was discovered in the Akaki village outside the capital Nicosia, making it the only one of its kind in Cyprus and one of seven in the world.
Not only is this mosaic incredibly detailed, but it illustrates complete race scenes for four charioteers, each being drawn by a team of four horses.
Experts believe this is a representation of the different factions that competed in ancient Rome.
