A 2,000-year-old street is believed to have been made in the command of Pontius Pilate have been found in the City.
In a study published in Tel Aviv: Journal of the Institute of Archaeology, the details of a hidden road that has been dug up over the past five or six years. More than 100 pieces, dating from 31 A. D. was founded under the paving stones, which “provides strong evidence that the street was in the order of Pilate,” according to a statement on the announcement of the results.
Dates of the coins, it is very clear,” said one of the study’s co-authors, and the growth of Talent, an archaeologist and coin expert with the Israel Antiquities Authority, in a statement. “If some of the coins from the year they were made on them, what that means is that if you have a coin with a date of 30 CE’s can be found on the street, and the street had to be built in the same year or a year after this coin was struck, so any time after 30 CE.”

PONTIUS PILATE, THE RING WAS DISCOVERED NEAR THE ANCIENT BIBLICAL FORTRESS
“However, our study goes further, because, statistically speaking, are the coins about a 10 years later on, the most common of the coins in Jerusalem, and with them on the street means that the street is constructed to the way they look, in other words, in the time of pontius Pilate,” Ariel added.
The newly discovered stretch of road spans of 220 metres (721 yards), and go to the pool of Siloam to the temple mount. This roadway is most likely to be used by the faithful, who were on their way to the temple mount is considered a holy place by Christians and Jews.

The Temple, which was built in the Old City of Jerusalem, and it is also the place where Jesus is said to have cured a man’s blindness, by sending him to wash in Siloam’s Pool.
The whole of the street was probably about 600 meters long and 8 meters wide, made of huge stone slabs, is a brand of the Roman Empire. The researchers believe that it would have taken around 10 000 tonnes of mined limestone for use in the construction of the road.
The fact that the road is considered to be “lavish and grand” is an additional piece of evidence that this is a way to be of interest.

“When the bridge is connected to point A, to point B, there would be no need to build a big road,” study co-author, Joe Uziel, and Moran, Hagbi, will be added to the list. “At a minimum, it is eight feet wide. This, combined with the finely-carved stone and beautiful ‘facilities’, if a stage is stepped along the path to indicate that it is a very special street.”

Nahshon Szanton, another of the study’s co-authors, said the street may have been great for a number of reasons: to reassure the inhabitants of Jerusalem,” in order to show how Jerusalem would be a good fit in the Roman world,” or “to aggrandize his [Pilate’s] name, by means of a large construction project.”
In November 2018, with a ring, which was discovered 50 years ago, it has been identified as probably belonging to Pilatus, after a Greek inscription, “Pilate,” it was clear to see in the ring.
