Azrael’s Commentary - Caesarea

 

Around 22 BCE, Herod the Great began building the city of Caesarea in honor primarily to himself, but also in honor of his patron and benefactor Caesar Augustus, the first Emperor of Rome. The city boasted of its man-made harbor which protected sea vessels from the high winds and waves which often lashed that part of the Mediterranean coast line.

 

The city was the Roman capital of Palestine, and it was the official residence of Pontius Pilate. The city also boasted of its amphitheater, baths, aqueduct, and of its temple for the worship of Caesar.
