This Roman two-handled pot comes from En Gedi, an archaeological site steeped in ancient history. En Gedi is an oasis on the western shores of the Dead Sea and is the name of the perennial spring that flows from a height of 200 meters above the Dead Sea. Biblical references to the site are numerous. In the stories about David’s flight from Saul, the desert area around the spring is called the “Wilderness of En-Gedi.” The site is also mentioned in the Song of Songs in connection with its vineyards. Various references to En-Gedi are also found in later sources from the second temple and the Roman and Byzantine periods. Moreover, documents were discovered in a nearby cave reveal that during the period preceding the second revolt, En-Gedi was a Jewish village that had become the property of the emperor and a Roman garrison was stationed there in the time of Bar Kokhba. The site was one of the administrative and military centers of the Prince of Israel. - (PF.2635)
