Cardo Maximus (the main road in Jerusalem)
The southern section of the road, in the Jewish quarter, was excavated and most of the archaeological findings were from the 6th C AD. Thus it is likely that this section was commissioned by Byzantine Emperor Justinus (565-527 AD), when the city became an important Christian center and the southern section has increased in population.
