The great king Herod imported marble from Italy to build his glorious city of Caesarea. Many of Herod’s cities and buildings were covered with this stone. He built these magnificent structures so people would remember him and honor him as a great king. Herod lived for himself. Because he built only for himself, nothing is left but ruins.
