Jerusalem: Tombs
Tombs in ancient Jerusalem.

Hyrcanus Monument The Funerary Tomb of John Hyrcanus, who was the Hasmonean king and high priest who reigned during the latter part of the 2nd century BC. The tomb monument with its pointed roof looked similar to that of Absaloms also found in the Kidron Valley. The Roman Legions who laid siege to Jerusalem made many attacks near this tomb according to Josephus.
