It's end-of-year-list time again!
I have commented on that bronze bull figurine from Olympia here.
Israeli archaeology is well represented. I noted the discovery of the winepress complex at Tzipori/Tzippori/Zippori/Sepphoris back in 2018, so it is not exactly a 2021 story, except that that seems to be when the Greek Reporter covered it. Likewise with the Dionysius mosaic at the same site, which I noted back in 2013. I noted the discovery of the gold coin of Heraclius here and the "Christ born of Mary" inscription here.
