THE TRICLINIUM in Herod’s Third Palace at Jericho (above) and the Banias hall both are large halls with entryways leading to colonnaded porticoes that overlook flowing streams—the Wadi Qelt at Jericho and the Hermon Stream at Banias. The architectural similarities, along with the new evidence for shared flooring designs, suggest that the opus reticulatum building at Banias should be interpreted as part of a palace. Only impressions in the gray plaster floor remain of the opus sectile in Herod’s triclinium at Jericho.
