Herod's royal portico

BIBLE HISTORY DAILY: Royal Portico on the Temple Mount. King Herod's impressive construction project. As usual, this BHS essay summarizes a paywall-protected article from Biblical Archaeology Review. This summary of Orit Peleg-Barkat's 2019 article “Reimagining Herod’s Royal Portico” is quite detailed. It also has a nice illustration.
