One can only imagine the utter thrill and excitement archaeologists must feel when uncovering items from thousands of years ago. These items consist of a rare cache of jewelry and silver coins, minted during from the reign of Alexander the Great, and have been discovered in a stalactite filled cave in northern Israel.



Two coins of Alexander of Macedon, three rings, four bracelets, two decorated earrings, three other earrings, probably made of silver, and a small stone weight.


Nested in the clay oil lamp, the agate stones are extremely well preserved, as if they were brand new.
