For example, an inscription of Psalm 1, “Open to me the gates of righteousness,” has several discrepancies from the text redacted in the Greek translation of the Bible, the Septuagint.

“They are local people,” said Aviam, “who probably couldn’t bring the best artists, and as a result one sees many mistakes.” For the most part, the names listed in the inscriptions are of local people, mostly of Greater Syrian origin, and some with a marked Phoenician influence.

The newly discovered mosaic, whose inscription provides the date of the church’s completion as 445, accords Irenaeus the title of “episkopos” or bishop of Tyre, capital of Phoenice.

The clear historical proof puts an old academic controversy to rest and gives credence to a date as early as 444 CE for his ordination. This inscription is a “great opportunity to connect the name on the mosaic, with that from the history books,” said Aviam.
