Storm Reveals A Statue of a Roman Woman.

It seems that you can't even turn a stone in Israel without finding some Archeological discovery. This rather impressive statue was found on the beach near Ashkalon. It seems that statue was revealed after a part of the cliff above the beach collapesed in the recent weather storm.
The statue - which lacks a head and arms - dates back about 1,800-2,000 years, officials at the Israel Antiquities Authorities (IAA) believe.The statue weighs about 200kg (440lb) and stands 1.2m (4ft) tall.
