Rare Trove of Coins Minted by Jewish Revolt Discovered Near Har Habayis


The Israeli Nature and Parks Authority announced that a team of archaeologists unearthed a trove of rare bronze coins dating from the last years of the Roman-Jewish War (66-73CE) in a cave near the south wall of the Har Habayis on Monday.

The discovery was part of the Ophel excavation operated by acclaimed Israeli archeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar of the Institute of Archaeology of the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, and included dozens of bronze coins as well as numerous fragments of pottery vessels from the difficult four-year rebellion of the Jews of Israel against Roman rule known as the Great Revolt.

Mazar’s team believes the coins were left by hidden Jewish residents of the Bayis Shayni who sought refuge from the Roman siege in a cave that measures 7 by 14 meters.
