The Resurrection of Ezekiel 37 at Dura Europas

Ezekiel 37 at Dura Europas

We studied the resurrection of the dry bones in Ezekiel 37 in my Thursday seminar this week. Great timing, since the topic of resurrection got us ready for Easter!
Above is a depiction of Ezekiel 37 in a third-century fresco from the Dura Europas synagogue in Syria. Surely, Ezekiel's vision of the dry bones come back to life was of interest at the synagogue because it spoke of the eschatological hope of the resurrection of all the faithful from the dead in the last days.

I would like to know in what part of Syria you would find Dura Europas.
