I just discovered a conversation that was posted on this forum last year concerning the dating of the Baker's Tomb in Rome. One of the earliest archaeologists to investigate and write about it was John Henry Parker (Archaeology of Rome) who took exception with the first century BCE dating.

He writes: "A very early date was at first assigned to it, and Canina is disposed to think it of the time of the Republic, but it must be near the end of it; the construction is evidently of later character than some of the aqueducts. The material is travertine and tufa, the sculpture also is too good for the early part of the Republic. The very singular plan, wider at one end than the other, is accounted for by the situation between two roads converging at the double gate, and these roads are not likely to have been brought so near together before the gate was made. The chief argument in favour of its being earlier than the aqueduct is, that no buildings were allowed to be erected so near the aqueducts; but that order was of subsequent date to the time of this tomb, and a low ornamental building of this kind might very well have been made an exception."

Gott and Licht (Following Philo)solve the enigmas on the Tomb:

"Important clues can be pulled from the surviving inscriptions written in Latin and repeated on the three recovered sides:


The words are most often translated:
“This is the monument of Marcus Vergilius Eurysacis, baker, contractor, public servant.”
However, this common translation is problematic and deficient for several reasons: The most obvious problem is with the last word, “APPARET.” Generally translated as the noun (“public servant”), apparet is a verb that means “to come in sight, to appear, become visible, make one's appearance (class. in prose and poetry).” Also, “to be seen, to show one's self, be in public, appear.” Therefore, it is quite clear that “public servant” is not the correct translation.

Marcei is a reference to the god Mars, the father of twin sons, Romulus and Remus, the mythological founders of Rome. The twins’ mother, Rhea Silvia, was a Vestal Virgin. In one version of the myth, the twins were conceived when Mars visited Rhea Silvia in a sacred laurel grove that was dedicated to him.
Vergilei is a reference to Vestal Virgins, the preeminent “bakers” in the Roman Empire. Vestals led the annual New Year rites on March 1 when new laurel branches replaced the old branches as they relit the sacred fire to symbolize a fresh start of the New Year.

The Vestals’ most important festival was the annual Vestalia that ran from June 9 until June 15. The Virgins baked sacred Mola Salsa Wafers made from wheat grown only in mountainous regions --where the Goddess dwells—and water from a sacred spring.

Bread in the form of the sacred Mola Salsa Wafers, sacred spring water, and the sacred laurel branch were the three items most often associated with the Vestal Virgins.
What does this mean? The couple in the Baker’s Tomb were the parents of twin sons born into a very prominent family, and “Atistia” was a Vestal Virgin who would have participated in their rituals of baking. Contrary to popular belief, “The Baker” was Atistia, not Eurysacis.

The Greek name “Eurysacis” also helps explain Honorius’ decision to bury the Tomb and the Gate: “Eurysacis” can be broken into two Greek words: the prefix Eury means “wide; broad”; the suffix sakis means “little” or “small.” Once we tie in some biblical verses, Honorius’ concern of a competing heresy comes into focus:
Jesus said: Enter through the narrow gate; for the gate is wide (Greek, eury) and the way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. For the gate is small (Greek, sakis) and the way is narrow that leads to life, and there are few who find it (Mt 7:13-14).

Included in the definition of “PISTORIS” is one revealed by the first-century poet, Ovid, who hung out with the Julio-Claudians: “A surname of Jupiter, because, when the Romans were besieged in the Capitol, he gave them the idea of hurling bread, as though they had an abundance of it, at the besieging Gauls.”
“Jupiter,” of course, was the Roman name for the deity the Greeks called “Zeus” – as in YaH-Zeus. Therefore, if Jupiter’s surname was Pistoris, then Zeus’ and YaH-Zeus’ surnames were Pistoris as well. Additionally, the letter “J” didn’t exist in the first century. Therefore, “Jupiter” was pronounced YaH-Peter, Hebrew words that are translated, “Yah’s first-born.” The name Peter is used in the New Testament to identify the Nazarenes’ eldest son of the eldest son.

REDEMPTORIS can be tied to Mary Magdalene: the Hebrew words, MGDL DR (MiGDoL eDeR), are translated, “watchtower of the flock.” The MaGDaL eDeR was introduced in the Old Testament immediately before the Bethlehem Prophecy (Mic 5:2-3) at Mic 4:8:

“As for you, watchtower of the flock, stronghold of Daughter Zion, the former dominion will be restored to you; the Kingdom will come to Daughter Jerusalem.”

Can this be interpreted as anything other than a prophecy that Daughter Zion, Daughter Jerusalem – the Watchtower of the Flock – would be resurrected from the ashes of Asherah that YHWH demanded be destroyed as in this demand:

Break down their altars, smash their sacred stones and burn their Asherah poles in the fire; cut down the idols of their gods and wipe out their names from those places (Dt 12:3). 

Micah’s prophecy continues:
Writhe in agony, Daughter Zion, like a woman in labor, for now you must leave the city to camp in the open field. You will go to Babylon; there you will be delivered, Redemptoris from the hand of YHWH, your adversary (Micah 4:9-10). (Footnote: Latin Redemptoris replacing Hebrew gaal.)
End quotation.

Theodosius's son, Emperor Honorius,buried the Tomb and the Porta Maggiore under a massive structure that was also called Porta Maggiore. This was done at the very time all "Pagan" Temples throughout the Empire were being destroyed, including the Temple of Zeus at Apamea, Serapis in Alexandria, Vestal Virgins, etc. He was responsible for extinguishing Vesta's Sacred Fire! The Nazarenes (as in "Jesus the Nazarene") traced their roots to Jacob/Israel's favorite son, Joseph, son of Rachel, grandson of Abraham and Sarah. They represented the deities, BaaL (also, aB eL, "Father El")and aSheRaH (also known as SaRaH). They were YHWH's adversaries. They were the Elohim. The Church Fathers and Nicene Christians claimed the Nazarenes came into being AFTER Paul's "Christianity" was introduced. This was a lie, just as "Jesus OF Nazareth" was a lie. The Nazarenes were led by Gamaliel the Elder who was supported by the Julio-Claudians. From Tiberius through Vespasian, the Emperors and the Julio-Claudian family were responsible for the annual festivals performed throughout the Empire, including Alexandria, Rome, and Jerusalem. "Jesus" is from YH-Zeus, an attempt to peacefully unite Orthodox Judaism (blood sacrifice) with the Nazarene philosophy (bloodless sacrifice in the form of sacred mola wafers)BAKED by the Vestal Virgins. "The Baker's Tomb" was built in 74 CE when the Vestal Virgin known as Caenis died; the same year Polemon II of Pontus died. In Rome they were known as Drusus and Livilla. They played the roles of "Jesus and Mary Magdalene" in annual festivals in Jerusalem.

The Nicene Christian Emperors put an end to their celebrations in Rome, and they buried their most important structures. As often happens, the Truth was buried by repeated lies.
