With Clyde Billington
Archaeologists found a bronze mask of the Greek/Roman god Pan at the decapolis city of Hippos/Sussita. Who was Pan and how did he relate to the biblical story? That’s one of the topics we discuss in this program, reporting on news digest items from the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine. Other topics include an ancient Christian grave yard found in Saudi Arabia, and a cache of Egyptian seals from in the Negev desert.
With Prof. Clyde Billington
In this program we review the news digests of the latest issue of ARTIFAX magazine for Biblical Archaeology items that we haven’t yet reported on the Book & The Spade. Items include an update on reconstruction plans for Herod’s Tomb, archaeological developments at Shiloh-the site of the Tabernacle, restoration of Avdat, and Negev farming.
