    Ancient milestone


The cluster of milestones found here note the 14th mile from Jerusalem on the road to Emmaus and Ramle. One bears a Latin inscription that translates: “To the Emperor Caesar Julius Verus Maximianus the pious, the fortunate, Aaugustus, and to Gaius Julius Verus Maximus, Caesar of Maximinus Augustus – the Invincible, the pious, the fortunate”.  

Maximianus ruled the Roman Empire from 235 to 238 CE.
