In the same palace Roman governors ruled Judea after the death of Herod. The memorial stone which has survived to this day mentions Pontius Pilate, the Roman ruler of Judea. He occupied this palace as a permanent residence, and from there he went to Jerusalem, where he condemned Jesus Christ to execution. Translated with Google Translate

The Byzantines inherited Caesarea from the Romans and rebuilt the city in their own way. The buildings are smaller, the mosaics are simpler, and the pagan symbols are replaced by Christian ones. However, the general plan of the city has not changed much except for the entertainment facilities. Hippodrome, and later the theater were abandoned. Crafts and trade flourished. At the crossroads of streets there was a public toilet and benches, taverns and city warehouses came down to the sea. Translated with Google Translate

At the foot of the fortress walls was a wide ditch filled with water. A drawbridge, thrown over the moat, led into the city from three sides: from the east, north and south. In the west was the port - linking Caesarea with Europe. Translated with Google Translate
