Legal Ostraca from Herodium

Esther Eshel, Haggai Misgav, Roi Porat

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article marks the first publication of two small fragments of legal documents on sherds found at Herodium with estimated dating to the period of the Great Revolt. Lacking a precise date, we surmise that these original sherds could have been brought to the site by refugees from the revolt, in a similar fashion to the documents found at Muraba' at.
