A Tile Fragment from the Tenth Legion. A Choice Tile Fragment of the Tenth Legion, Israel, Jerusalem, late 1st- 2nd century AD. The tile, another paver, is a little different from the other examples, is fashioned from a gritty orange-tan clay and hard-fired. Again, a square of 7" on each side, and about 1 ½" thick. Here about two thirds of the tile present. Of the legionary stamp, "LEG X" remains. The impression bold, and the letters stand out clear. The tile face clean and with little wear. On the back a thick layer of the mortar still adheres; this, interestingly shows the use of crushed shells as filler. A fine example, and very affordable. Size: 7" x 6".
Estimated Value $350 - 500.

Realized $460
