Marble Head

It seems that archaeologists in Israel have been making a series of interesting discoveries. Recently, a marble head of a boxer was discovered at an archaeological excavation in Jerusalem. The head, which is 6 X 4 centimeters, dates to the 2nd or 3rd century AD and is very detailed. Archaeologists feel that no other marble artifact of a boxer has been discovered in the country. This is the same site at which archaeologists  last month discovered a cache of 264 gold coins dated to the 7th century.
