Weapons from the Roman period found stashed away | via Israel Antiquities Authority Official Channel

Israeli archaeologists were both stunned and elated upon their discovery of four incredibly rare Roman swords.

The team came upon the 1,900-year-old weapons while exploring a cave just off the Dead Sea.

The swords date back to the Bar Kochba revolt. Each sword was found within their original scabbards and they are believed to have been hidden in the cave by Jewish rebels during the revolt. (Trending: Joe Biden Decides Whether to Wear A Mask Again)

Three of the swords are Roman spatha swords with blades 60 to 65 centimeters.

Dr. Eitan Klein, one of the directors of the Israel Antiquities Authority’s Judean Desert Survey, said, “We’re talking about an extremely rare find, the likes of which have never been found in Israel.”

“The four swords were discovered shoved into a small fissure in a cave near Ein Gedi National Park, near the Dead Sea,” the report found.

“The cave is already well-known to archaeologists, as it contains a stalactite with a fragmentary ink inscription written in ancient Hebrew script characteristic of the First Temple period.” (Trending: Popular Chain Caught Sponsoring Youth Drag Show)

The swords likely belonged to Roman soldiers and were stolen by Judean rebels who hid them in a cave either for later use or to avoid being caught with them.”

The Bar Kochba revolt occurred sometime between 132-135 AD, led by Shimon Bar Kochba. Kochba’s followers knew him as their Messiah, but the revolt was quickly ended by Rome not long after its birth.
