View in the interior of the top of the Herodium of the Triclinium, which was just west of the interior garden . Looking west.
During the Herodian period the room served as a "Triclinium" - a dining room with couches. But many have suggested that the Jewish Zealots, who occupied the Herodium during the First Revolt (A.D. 66-70) added the benches and turned the room into a synagogue.
Note the black object just left of center. It is a portion of a basalt grinder. Basalt is found on the Golan Heights and in the Capernaum region - places were these industrial tools were made, and then they were shipped to other parts of the country.
