An inscribed fragment from a 2,000 year-old sarcophagus has been discovered near Jerusalem. The fragment appears to have been recycled into a Muslim building at some later date.
Archaeologists believe the fragment was from the sarcophagus of a Jewish Priest who served at the 2nd Temple between A.D. 30 and 70 – during New Testament times.
A press release is here.
Update: The inscription is in Hebrew and translates as “son of the High Priest”. The Israel Antiquities Authority has more details on this find in the official press release.
