Roman Period Sandal

In a cave in Wadi el-Habibi Joseph Patrich found a Roman period leather sandal, one end of which was eaten away. The sole of the sandal was made of two layers fastened by leather strips. Archaeologists discovered this type of sandal at the desert mountaintop stronghold of Masada, where Jewish rebels held out during the First Jewish Revolt, and in caves in the Judean wilderness that contained remains from the Second Jewish Revolt.

Joseph Patrich, “Hideouts in the Judean Wilderness,” BAR 15-05, Sep-Oct 1989.
