The “Pilate Stone” was disovered in Caesarea in 1961, in secondary use as a step in the local Theatre. The Stone was originally placed at the entrance to a temple built in honor of Emperor Tiberius by the local governer (“Perfect”) Pontius Pilate . The stone is the only epigraphic evidence to this day to mention the judge of Jesus.
