Summary

Held at the Israel Museum in Jerusalem, this exhibition is of the rare Byzantine hoard, which was discovered at the site of the Temple Mount, and is now on display to the public for the first time. On exhibit is jewelry made fo gold and silver, including a gold medallion bearing the image of the Temple's seven-branched menorah, which is to date the largest and most impressive discovery of its kind.

This display is located in the Archaeology Wing's Holy Land Gallery, which is devoted to the development of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam, illuminating early chapters in the evolution of the world's three main monotheistic religions alongside one another.
