Archaeological discovery in Jerusalem raises question: Who was Horkanus?

An archaeological discovery in Jerusalem’s City of David has researchers asking the question, "Who was Horkanus?"

The name is carved into a piece of a stone bowl dating back some 2,100 years to the Hasmonean period, which was revealed by the Israel Antiquities Authority on Thursday. Such stone bowls were commonly used by Jews in the period, but the fact that a name in Hebrew is etched into the bowl makes the discovery a rare event.
