A small golden bell preserved in a Roman-era sewer was found by Israeli archaelogists underneath Jerusalem’s old city.
According to reports, the last time the bell rang was 2,000 years ago but right after its recovery, it was able to ring again!
The artifact measures one centimeter in diameter and was worn back then as an ornament on the clothes of the wealthy citizens.
The book of Exodus in the Bible mentions tiny golden bells are worn by Temple priests as ornaments on their robes. However, it’s not known if the recovered bell was one of those.
