Three segments for the 6th-century murals in the 3rd-century Dura Europos synagogue grace the chalkboard doors. Ezra, the Scribe, reads the law; Moses strikes the rock, bringing forth water to the 12 tribes; and Aaron appears at the consecration of the temple.

The floor mosaic, assembled in Israel, replicates one in the 6th-century Galilean synagogue of Beth Alpha.
