The artifacts in the Zeugma Mosaic Museum in Gaziantep, which were affected by the earthquakes in Kahramanmaraş, survived the earthquakes without being damaged. Gaziantep Museum Director Özgür Çomak told Anadolu Agency (AA) that there was no loss of life in terms of personnel in the museum.
Çomak stated that he is happy for the renovation of the Zeugma MosaicMuseum, which is located on the Silk Road in Gaziantep and is one of the most important museums in the world in terms of both its building complex and the works inside. There is no damage in any of our works, the structural condition of the building, the works and the display arrangements. We were not damaged in any way,” he said.
Stating that they determined that there was no damage in other museums in the city apart from the Zeugma Museum, Çomak said, “The officials of the Ministry of Environment and Urbanization examined the structural columns, beams and other spaces of our building.” After the second earthquake, we saw that we did not encounter any loss of artifacts,” he said.
