In a legal case that lasted 7 years, Oded Golan, an Israeli antiquity dealer who was accused of making fake biblical artifacts, was acquitted by a judge in Jerusalem today. Golan was accused of forging the James Ossuary, a stone box containing the bones of James, the brother of Jesus. Golan was also accused of faking the Jehoash inscription, an inscription that was considered to be the only surviving royal inscription from ancient Israel.
