    5th century Greek inscription found at site of ancient Samaritan rebellion

    5th century Greek inscription found at site of ancient Samaritan rebellion


    Rare mosaic attests to the 1,600-year-old holdings of wealthy landowner ‘Master Adios’ in the heartland of a Samaria at war with the encroaching Christian empire

    A salvage excavation ahead of the construction of a new neighborhood in the central Israel village of Tzur Natan has unearthed rare written evidence of much earlier occupation — 1,600 years earlier — when the agriculturally fertile area was racked by turmoil and rebellion.


    Just outside an ancient wine press in the small southern Sharon Plain settlement, the Israel Antiquities Authority team discovered a well-preserved Greek inscription from the 5th century recording a blessing for one “Master Adios.”

    Lol; fond memories; as a young single man I was going out with a girl whose brother in law got me a job with the JNF. I worked the site of the future Kokhav Yair, adjacent, or closest, to Tzur Natan. Good memories of working outside, drinking sweet tea boiled on a wood fire, and eating carobs from the old tree on the main road leading into Tzur Natan.
