The Ossuaries Without Inscriptions

The inscriptions on the ossuaries found in the Talpiot Tomb in 1980 by a bulldozer read as follows:

Ossuary 80/500: “Mariamene e Mara” – “Mariamne, also called Master”

Ossuary 80/501: “Yehuda bar Yeshua” – “Judah, son of Jesus”

Ossuary 80/502: “Matia” – “Matthew”

Ossuary 80/503 “Yeshua bar Yosef” – “Jesus, Son of Joseph”

Ossuary 80/504 “Yose” or “Yosa” – a nickname for “Joseph”

Ossuary 80/505: “Maria” – a Latinized version of the Hebrew “Miriam.”

Of the ten ossuaries pulled from the niches of the burial chamber, inscriptions were recorded as occurring on six, a very high ratio considering that only 20% of the thousands of ossuaries ever found bear such inscriptions.

Ossuaries 80/506-508 were plain, with no inscriptions.

And no one knows anything really about Ossuary 80/509. It disappeared before it could be checked for inscriptions or ornamentation.
