Description

During the archaeological excavations of A. Frova in Caesarea (1950), an epigraph was found that named Pontius Pilate, prefect of Judea, the only direct reference and not from literary sources (Gospels, Tacitus, Philo) of the person known for the trial of Jesus. This is an inscription of considerable importance, contemporary and official, direct testimony of the acts of Pontius Pilate which is indicated with the title of praefectus Iudaeae "Pontius Pilate prefect of Judea [dedicated / restored and dedicated] the Tiberium [for the sailors / for the inhabitants of Caesarea] ”. The dedication refers to the construction of a public building in honor of Emperor Tiberius (14-37 AD) which is still unknown to archaeologists today. Excluding that it was a temple, one could think of a porticoed square, probably in the vicinity of the theater, where the stone was reused in the fourth century. A.D.
