Two brothers who work locally as farmers discovered the 10-meter-long mosaic depicting different figures and Greek inscriptions while they were working in their field in Gölbaşı.

They informed the local authorities about their finding, after which technical teams visited the field to make inspections.

Following this process, the mosaic was submitted to the Adıyaman Museum Directorate which removed it from the field and transported to Şanlıurfa for further examination.
