CWN Editor's Note: The ring, discovered five decades ago, has only recently been deciphered. The Israeli Exploration Journal published an article (Vol. 68/2) stating that “this ring might have belonged to Pontius Pilatus, the prefect of the Roman province of Judaea, or to a person in his administration, either a Jew or a pagan.”
