Over the next couple of weeks I'll "hit the books" and take a second look at the Bassianus - Bassano parallel. A pattern is already evident between the priestly emphasis of High Priest Bassianus/Sassan and that of the Bassano/Medici family as "High Priests of Rome". There was also both a Roman and Jewish aspect of the earlier Julius Aurelius Zenobius Zabdilah that was emulated by the later Bassano family. Should make for an interesting study and provide a fitting conclusion to this year's "diggings".
