Greek Orthodox Church sells Roman amphitheatre in Caesarea

ANCIENT ARCHITECTURE: Ancient Roman Amphitheater in Caesarea sold by Greek Orthodox church to mystery foreign buyer. Justice ministry calls meeting over surprise sale of 700 dunams of land belonging to Patriarchate in ancient port city, TV report says (Times of Israel). Well, that's a surprise. If I recall correctly, I have seen the Caesarea amphitheatre. But I have never blogged about it.
