1. The Court of Nemesis Marker
Inscription. Nemesis was the goddess of vengeance and Roman imperial justice. Her long and narrow court was built in 178 CE in front of a great niche in which her statue was placed. A Greek inscription above the niche mentions the names of the goddess and of the donor. The pavers of the court were arranged in a checker pattern of white and reddish stones.

Location. 33° 14.927′ N, 35° 41.675′ E. Marker is near Snir, Northern District, in Upper Galilee Regional Council. Marker can be reached from National Route 99 just east of Route 999, on the left when traveling north. Touch for map. I used google maps to try to obtain directional information, but many of the streets in this area of Israel appear to be un-named. Even using the google map directions feature has the last turn being made on a street referred to as "unknown road." From Tiberias take Route 90 north about 54 km, then turn right onto Route 99 and proceed for 12.9 km, and then finally turn left onto "unknown road" for about 110 m and the Caesarea Philippi National Park will be on your right.
