  • According to the Jewish historian Josephus Flavius, the fifth — and best known — Roman governor of Judaea, Pontius Pilate (traditional chronology A.D. 26—36), was involved in the affair of building an aqueduct during his period of office, according to the above Greek passage which states: „On a later occasion he provoked a fresh uproar by expending upon the construction of an aqueduct the sacred treasure known as Corbonas; the water was brought from a distance of 400 furlongs."
