This triclinium, in our reconstruction, would have resembled two elaborate dinning halls in Herod’s winter palace complex (which actually consists of three palaces, built at different times) at Jericho. (See Suzanne F. Singer, “The Winter Palaces of Jericho,” BAR 03:02) One triclinium (measuring 15 feet by 33 feet) was exposed by James B. Pritchard in 1951, in the first Herodian palace built at this site. Another hall (95 feet by 62 feet) was exposed by the present author in 1974, in Herod’s third palace.
