pleted between 22 and 10
B.C.E., is a "21st century har-
bor built years ago," the
curators said. Man's mixed
success in controlling the
ocean environment can be
seen throughout, starting
with a crude stone anchor
from the 13th century B.C.E.
Each of the six historical
sections — Helenistic, Hero-
dian, Roman, Byzantine,
Islamic, and Crusader — is ac-
companied by a wall-chart
showing how deep below
ground the finds were buried.
The first sight in the ex-
hibit is a classical statue of
Tyche, the Greek goddess of
fortune who symbolized
Herod's city. Life-like with
her right breast bared, the
statue sums up the stark con-
trast between Roman rituals
and those of the native Jews.
"Herod's Dream" also il-
lustrates how one religion
replaced the next down the
centuries: Christians built a
cathedral where the pagan
temple once stood, and the
Moslems in turn built their
Great Mosque on the same
temple platform.
Caesarea's -Jewish com-
munity is a permanent ele-
ment in the city's history.
Undecorated oil lamps testify
to Jews' pious abstention
from graven imagery, while a
Jewish epitaph in Green from
late antiquity implies
assimilation. Hopes for the
restoration of the Temple in
Jerusalem are evoked by a
Byzantine-era Hebrew in-
scription listing priestly
families and their native
towns, arranged in order of
service in the Temple.
When the Arabs took the
city after a fierce 7-year siege
in 640 C.E., the East seemed
to have triumphed over the
West. But the city continued
to produce fine, decorated
ceramics. Some of these are
on display.
In this century, Kibbutz
Sdot Yam settled the area
around Caesarea for the first
time since Herod's grand city
was abandoned in 1291.
`Herod's Dream" unveils a
great deal about Herod, but it
also presents a timely survey
of the turbulence and con-
tinuity of a major site in
present-day Israel.

Neve Shalom
Is Nominated

Jerusalem — Neve
Shalom/Wahat Al-Salam,
Israel's only Jewish-Arab
cooperative village, has been
nominated for the 1988 Nobel
Peace Prize by Erline Bager
and Kerstin Ekman, mem-
bers of the Swedish
parliament.
