Sarcophagi to be displayed at Ashkelon

EXHIBITION: Gorgeous 4th Century Roman Sarcophagi Go on Display in Ashkelon (David Israel, The Jewish Press). HT Rogue Classicism.
The Ashkelon Municipality and the Israel Antiquities Authority are upgrading the display of ancient Roman finds that have been stored for more than 50 years in the Sarcophagi Court at the Beit Ha’am compound in the Afridar neighborhood, and now they will be presented to the general public in a modern and inviting display.
For a comparatively recent (2015) discovery of an ancient sarcophagus at Ashkelon, see here.
