Caesarea-Maritima-column-capital-Ionic-style

One of the column capitals on display in the garden by Herod’s theater is an Ionic style capital. The informative sign beneath it reads:

“This capital dates from the Herodian period (end of the first century BCE to 70 CE) and is the most ancient capital on display here. It might have been part of one of the luxurious buildings erected by King Herod.”
