Det blir stadig gjort interessante arkeologiske funn i utgravingane i og rundt Davidsbyen i Jerusalem. I går offentleggjorde Israel Antiquities Authority funnet av ein spesiell og interessant marmorfigur frå ca 200:
An 1,800 Year Old Marble Figurine in the Image of a Bearded Man, probably that of a Roman Boxer, was Discovered
The figurine was used as a suspended weight together with a balance scale. This is probably the only find of its kind from excavations in the country.
A figurine (bust) made of marble depicting a miniature image of a bearded man’s head was discovered in the excavations that the Israel Antiquities Authority is conducting in the area of the Givati car park in the City of David, in the Walls around Jerusalem National Park. (les meir og sjå bilete)
