City of David

Freedom of Zion Roman Glass Necklace.

$140

This necklace is part of a collection of jewelry that is inspired by a series of famous coins that were minted during the Jewish revolt against the Romans and reflect the spirit of the revolt over time. On one side of the coin is a grape leaf and the words “Freedom of Zion” inscribed in Hebrew, and on the other side, a goblet with the words “Year Two” (67/68 CE, the second year of the Great Revolt). At the time, the Jews believed that they would win the war against Rome and the slogan on the coin aptly expresses that belief. This coin was found during the sifting of archaeological rubble from the Temple Mount at Emek Tzurim National Park on the Mount of Olives. Similar coins were found in excavations in the Shiloah (Siloam) Pool and in the City of David.
