Ancient Greek Earring Unveiled in Jerusalem

An ancient Greek gold earring found last year in Jerusalem has been revealed by the Israeli authorities.

The jewellery, around 2,000 years old and fashioned to look like a horned animal, was finally unveiled by the Israel Antiquities Authority on Wednesday.

In a report by AFP, it was claimed the find was not publicized earlier as experts needed time to examine the item.

According to an IAA statement: “It is unclear whether the gold earring was worn by a man or a woman, nor do we know their cultural or religious identity, but we can say for certain that whoever wore this earring definitely belonged to Jerusalem’s upper class.”
