I'm not sure if anyone's interested in this: https://www.yahoo.com/news/elevator-project-old-jerusalem-leads-072844509.html

Basically, while a construction company was was working on a site to build an accessible elevator for an university, they unknowingly unearthed a first-century mikveh, a Jewish ritual bath.

I'm letting the :kitty: delegation off for a while due to the heat/humidity (they're enjoying the extra hydration of tinned food as well as freshly changed filters for their water fountains.)

:kitty:gram! 2,000 year old mosaic floor unearthed

I know, no one is interested in this. *heads for the Mope Corner, :kitty: in tow*

I really enjoyed this paragraph (the rest was intetesting, too):

Experts say they are hopeful the discovery of the villa’s floor will shed light on the building’s first owner, Publius Vedio Pollione, a rich merchant, knight and politician. Pollione was close to Augustus, but the two had a falling out, according to a Dec. 12 Facebook post...

Imagine Pollione and the emperor Augustus having a flame war on social media 🤣
