Well-preserved Aramaic inscriptions are discovered in a cave including a depiction of a the sacred menorah.
A mysterious message has been found in an underground cave which turned out to house the remains of a Jewish ritual bath, the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) said Wednesday.
The inscriptions are in the ancient language of Aramaic — the language spoken in the time of Jesus — and written in cursive Hebrew script, which was customary at the end of the Second Temple period. This era spans about six hundred years, beginning in 530 B.C. and ending with the destruction of the second Jewish Temple by the Romans in 70 A.D.
Experts are trying to decipher the message — so far without much success.
