The Arch of Titus Menorah

With Steven Fine

After talking about the synagogue and menorah image excavated at Magdala with Steven Fine of Yeshiva University, we transitioned to a discussion of another menorah image on the Arch of Titus in Rome. Professor Fine is involved in research that has uncovered vestiges of pigment, indicating the arch was very colorful when it was first constructed. We also include a short discussion of his research on the Samaritans.
