Photographer's Note

This 4th century Mausoleum is one of the best preserved Roman buildings in Israel, located in El'ad, alongside route 444, at 32.047, 34.946 on the map.
From Wikipedia:
The Mausoleum, which is the only Roman era building in Israel to still stand from its foundations to its roof, was built for an important Roman man and his wife in the 4rd century AD. Their identities remain a mystery but one can still see the remnants of two sarcophagi in the mausoleum.
I attached a WS with the explanatory plaque .
A second WS with closer view upon the small hatch-entrance decorated with pillars.
This edifice I noticed many times in the past when driving on this road, but only in recent years it was cleaned, excavated and named Israel's national heritage monument.
