Bel Temple at Palmyra, Syria

Scorpio and the other zodiacal signs appear on this massive relief carved from a single stone at the Bel Temple, Palmyra, Syria. The zodiac signs surround Bel and the other planet-gods Helios, Selene, Ares, Hermes, Aphrodite and Cronos. Picture is courtesy of “spdl_n1

Palmyra (aka Tadmor) is 215 km northeast of Damascus. Bel’s Greek name is Zeus and his Roman name is Jupiter. This temple is dated to the reign of Tiberius in 32 C.E. 

In order to see the signs clearly I'm afraid you'll have to zoom in by clicking the All Sizes command above the picture
