The mosaic was unearthed during excavations in 2009.

Mustafa Çelik, Deputy Director of Adıyaman Museum, who stated that the mosaic started to be exhibited since 2018 after the environmental arrangements, told AA correspondent, “The upper part is closed with steel construction for protection. Then the restoration processes were completed and it was opened to visitors.”
