A cavernous reservoir, with a capacity of more than a million gallons, supplied the ancient city of Sepphoris with fresh water. From the first through seventh century C.E., water was conducted along two aqueducts that led from springs located in the foothills of Mt. Yona and merged briefly before separating about a mile outside the city. The northern aqueduct emptied into a pool on the city’s outskirts; the southern led through the reservoir of Sepphoris and into the city proper.
