 Sepphoris is ancient city in the western lower Galilee, known for its many mosaics.

Sepphoris was an important Jewish center, and in Sepphoris R Judah “the Prince” codified the Mishnah.

Jesus also knew of Sepphoris, and medieval tradition maintains that Sepphoris was the hometown of the parents of Mary, mother of Jesus.
