“Simon, builder of the Temple.” The inscription on this ossuary found in the same Jewish tomb with the ossuary of Yehohanan tells posterity the part Simon played in history.

Since not all families could afford limestone ossuaries for secondary burials, we know that this was a family of some wealth.
