We have just been informed that one of the Hebrew newspapers intends to publish a piece tomorrow about the archaeological revelation that will be presented in detail on Tuesday, May 8, at the press conference at the Hebrew University about which you have previously received notice.
We are therefore informing you now that the subject of the press conference will be the discovery of the grave and tomb of King Herod at Herodium. No details have been conveyed by us about this; rather the newspaper that intends to publish the story found out about it through independent means;
it has no first-hand information from the archaeologist who made the discovery. This information will only be presented at the press conference which will be held at 10 a.m. Tuesday in the Litwinsky Senate Hall on the Mount Scopus campus of the Hebrew University.
