The mosaic carpet in the apse was decorated with a grapevine that creates medallions populated with animals. Only two medallions near the apse wall survived only partially. The center was preserved in the entirety of a colorful rooster that stands to the south. South of the rooster is a duck medallion, bending its head toward the rooster. Outside the medallions and north of the rooster were partially preserved head and tail of a bird, perhaps a Nahlieli. The frame around the carpet is decorated with a pattern of arranged flowers in a checkered set.
