Known by both its Greek and Hebrew names, Sepphoris (its Greek name) has offered archeologists many years of successful excavations. During the 1983-1991 dig in Sepphoris, archeologists uncovered many glass objects as well as public buildings and baths, residential areas, an amphitheater, market building, industrial buildings, cisterns, and a complicated drainage system. Archaeologists have also been excited by all the mosaics they have found in Sepphoris.
The glass that was uncovered came from 200 B.C.E to 1300 C.E. Most of the artifacts that were made in about 400 C.E. There were 779 glass objects. Out of all the glass artifacts 535 were identifiable and 244 were not. Of the identifiable objects there were 238 bowls, 142 bottles, 81 cups, 16 jars, 12 lamps, 13 pieces of jewelry, 10 jugs, 12 goblets, and 8 fragments of various small objects, for example, rods, tubes, discs, and game pieces.
