The Tomb of the Kings has reopened

THEOLOGICAL POLITICS: France reopens disputed ancient tomb in Jerusalem (AFP). The legal disputes seem not to be over yet, but the Tomb of the Kings in Jerusalem did reopen (briefly?) last week.

As I have noted before, the site is generally, although not universally, understood to be the burial ground of the dynasty of Queen Helena of Adiabene.

Background on the whole complicated story is here and links.
