Roman Statue Uncovered on Israel’s Coast

One of the strongest storms to hit Israel’s coast in recent history has uncovered an ancient treasure.  The storm buffeted the coastline of the ancient town of Caesarea (modern day Ashkelon).  A cliff along the coast collapsed revealing a beautiful statue that early estimates date back to a Roman occupation nearly 2,000 years ago.  You can see some great pics and read more about this wonderful discovery at the links provided.
