My own new book, "From Paul to Mark: Paleochristianity", is now ready to go. Just a few formatting tweaks and it goes to press... that is, any day now.

We've had some of the architecture of ancient Rome, and i just came across 2 modern attempts at showing what a ladies hairstyle from the Flavian era would have looked like. One comment says that they may have sewn the front piece in, i think meaning it would have been a weave/wig of some kind:

"This reconstruction of the Flavian hairstyle is even more chic "

Caesarea was one of the greatest cities of antiquity ⏳

It became famous for its grand boulevards, temples, palaces, bathhouses and public buildings in Hellenistic-Roman style.

Merchants coming from the Roman Empire were surprised by the city's infrastructure, comparing it to Athens in Greece or Alexandria in Egypt.

It was inhabited by Greeks, Egyptians, Jews, Assyrians, Persians, Arabs, and many others.

Initially it was a Phoenician settlement, called the Tower of Straton.

In 22 BC, it was occupied by the Romans and annexed to the Roman province of Judea.

Controlled by King Herod, it was renamed Caesarea in honor of the Roman emperor Caesar Augustus.

During Roman rule, the entire city was enlarged.

Every five years, it hosted events such as gladiatorial fights, horse races, and theater performances.

Its most famous buildings overlooked the Mediterranean Sea: a hippodrome and theater.

Caesarea was one of the main academic centers of the Roman Empire, with a large library and school with more than 30,000 manuscripts.

To feed its 125,000 inhabitants, King Herod invested in a large 16 km aqueduct to bring water to the city.

Its great artificial harbor, the Port of Sebastos, was built of concrete, lime and mortar.

However, the infrastructure would not resist for long the geological faults of the region.

Earthquakes have leveled and destroyed much of the port over the centuries.
