Another Choice Tile Fragment of the Tenth Legion, Israel, Jerusalem, late 1st - 2nd Century AD. The tile, another paver, is a little different from the previous examples. The clay is a little finer grain, and a deep pink color. This one a square of about 7¼" on each side, and about 1¼" thick. Here about half of the tile present, with three quarters of the legionnary stamp remaining: "…E X FR". This stamp with a shortened inscription, and in a smaller, more delicate style. The extant impression bold, the letters very clear. The tile face clean and with only minimal wear. Small collection number inked on the side. Again, a fine example, and very affordable. Size: 7¼ x 4¾".
Estimated Value $350 - 500.

Realized $288
