2,000-year-old stairs unearthed in City of David excavation - Yori Yalon

by Yori Yalon

Pyramid-shaped set of stairs is located next to a street that leads from the Pool of Siloam to the Temple • Israel Antiquities Authority archeologists believe structure functioned as a podium from which government decrees, news, and gossip were announced.

Did the two millennia-old staircase function as an ancient news website, alerting passers-by to the latest news and gossip?
