Mansion Discovered in the City of David

Archaeologist Doron Ben-Ami and his team have uncovered an exceptionally large house in digs across from the City of David Visitor Center. Ben-Ami speculates that the mansion may have been one of three palaces built by Queen Helene of Adiabene, who converted to Judaism and settled in Jerusalem.

Read about this story in Haaretz or read why the Queen Helene theory is far-fetched at the BiblePlaces.com blog.
