“Of Bar Kathros,” proclaims the Hebrew inscription on this stone weight (left) found in the Burnt House. An artist’s drawing of the weight (right) shows the partially broken letter dales (the first letter, reading right to left) which means “of.” Now archaeologists can give a name and even a family history to the owners of this workshop. The Bar Kathros family was infamous— as High Priests, they served as overlords of their fellow Jews during Roman rule and abused their power through nepotism and libel.
