Yesterday archaeologists discovered Jewish coins from the Jewish – Roman War, 66-73AD. The rare coins were found in a cave in the Old City with pieces of pottery from the period of the Great Revolt, when the Romans destroyed the Second Temple. The discovery was given particular significance as they were found just before the Jewish holiday of Passover, a celebration of Jewish freedom and self-determination.
Chris and I explored near this area on the Southern Wall during our visit last year.
