Ancient Gold Medallion Found at Foot of Temple Mount in Jerusalem (1 of 2) (video) The Hebrew University of Jerusalem Share Print E-Mail Loading video... Caption In summer excavations at the foot of the Temple Mount, Hebrew University of Jerusalem archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar made a stunning discovery: two bundles of treasure containing 36 gold coins, gold and silver jewelry, and a 10-cm gold medallion with a Temple candelabrum, ram's horn and Torah scroll etched into it. Mazar estimates the items were abandoned in the context of the Persian conquest of Jerusalem in 614 CE. Credit Video courtesy Dr. Eilat Mazar and Herbert W.
