Finds from Caesarea

Recommended Posts

The Japan Times reports on finds at the Roman port of Caesarea:


Israeli archaeologists working on a major Roman-era port city on Wednesday unveiled new discoveries including an altar dedicated to Augustus Caesar and a centuries-old mother-of-pearl tablet inscribed with a menorah.  Archaeologists said it likely dates to the fourth or fifth century A.D.

Caesarea was my FAVORITE stop on my tour of Israel last year.  So many well-preserved mosaics and structures, especially the restored amphitheater and hippodrome.  Definitely worth one's time!
