Temple Mount Gold Discovery

With Prof. Clyde Billington

Israeli archaeologist Eilat Mazar recently announced the discovery of two caches of gold at her Ophel area excavations, near the southern steps of the Temple Mount. Anytime gold is discovered it's a good day for archaeology. But the unique dating of this amazing discovery and the menorah pictured on a medallion from the cache suggest to Prof. Clyde Billington an unusual link to another gold treasure cache, taken by the Romans from the Temple Mount in 70 A.D.
