Kidron Valley Tombs are a set of monumental tombs carved in the limestone rocks against the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Though they bear no inscription with a date, they were probably created in the 1st century by wealthy families of Jewish priests.

In the 1960’s  a British archaeologists suggested they contained treasrues mentioned in the “Copper Scroll” and excavated their vicinity.
