And just for fun – two “other” Goliaths…

Although we, at Tell es-Safi/Gath, are the home of the “real” Goliath, here are two Goliaths from other places:

  1. A mosaic from a Byzantine church in Syria with a David and Goliath mosaic has been reported (HT Jack Sasson). For the article, in French, but with a nice picture – see here.
  2. Just found at that one of the leaders of the Free West Papua movement (against which the Indonesian government regularly commits crimes of unspeakable magnitude that are almost completely overlooked by the world…) is named Goliat Tabuni! (and here in Indonesian)

It’s a small world…
