Extremely Valuable Treasures That Are Still Lost

The Menorah from the Second Temple

Jewish rebels attempted to secure their freedom from the Romans between 66 and 74 AD, however the Romans, led by future Roman emperor Titus, captured the city of Jerusalem in 70 AD. The city’s Second Temple was raided and the Roman troops carted off the temple’s sacred menorah.

Evidence of the theft is depicted on a monument called the Arch of Titus. One of the scenes carved onto the arch shows the Romans carrying off the menorah, which is nearly as large as the soldiers in the illustration. After its arrival in Rome, history lost track of the menorah from the Second Temple. Some experts belief it may still be hidden somewhere in the city.
