Central section of west wall with Torah shrine

YUAG, Dura-Europos Collection, negative number dura-g1164a~01

The Yale-French team faced challenges in photographing the synagogue paintings with the equipment available and difficulties in lighting. This photograph of the west wall of the assembly hall, oriented toward Jerusalem, includes important details of the Torah niche and surrounding benches during excavation but views of the entire wall are notably lacking in the photographic record.
