A rosette moved to another location would look as sweet. Rosettes were common designs in the late Second Temple period (first century B.C.E.–first century C.E) and are found on ossuaries, stone tables, sun dials, tomb entrances and bowls. Recovered in the excavations at the foot of the southern wall of the Temple Mount, this stone fragment is one of many from the Herodian period that were decorated with elegant rosettes and most likely came from the Royal Stoa at the southern end of the Temple Mount.
