Greek on the bottom, Absalom’s Tomb in the Kidron Valley is one of the most remarkable Judean display tombs built after the grand Maccabean family monument. Despite its name, Absalom’s Tomb is not the tomb of King David’s son Absalom; it was built in the first century B.C. for someone now unknown. The conical, hat-shaped roof was inspired by Alexandrian baroque-style architecture, while the lower part—the Ionic columns and metopes—are classic Greek.
