Caesarea’s “Byzantine Street” is well hidden behind the parking lot near the northern entrance to the National park. It is a bit hard to reach, but well worth the effort! Two larger-then-life statues decorate a plaza, paved by Marble and mosaics.
An inscription in the mosaic indicate restorations in the 6th Century CE, but the sculptures are from Roman times. Although the heads are missing, it is quite likely that the white marble sculpture is of Zeus, and the Red Phorphir is of Hadrian.
