Ancient Relic Found By Woman Swimming

Israeli Tal Fastman found something she didn’t expect during her swim in Kinneret: an ancient relic. According to Fastman, this experience is a “dream come true.”

“It seems like the lake’s low water levels facilitated this find,” said the authority’s Yoav Tzur, an archaeologist. “It’s a rare and precious object, that most likely fell off of an ancient ship nearby and ended up here.” The chicken-shaped object, he explained, was most likely used in early Christian funerary rituals. It will now be displayed in a nearby museum for all to observe.
