Archaeology/Hellenistic, Roman & Byzantine Periods

Stone tables were common throughout the Roman Empire, so it is no wonder that they have also been found in Jerusalem. Their style and range of decorative designs, however, were based on local stone-carving traditions. The rectangular tables, which stood on one leg, were only decorated on three sides, suggesting that they were placed against a wall.
