For the sojourner in Herodion - Brother Herod

"...Following the writings of Josephus, Hebrew University Professor Ehud Netzer reported on May 8, 2007, that he discovered Herod's gravesite atop of tunnels and water pools, at a flattened desert site, halfway up the hill to Herodium, 12 kilometers (7.5 mi) south of Jerusalem - the precise location given by Josephus..."

The location of Herod's tomb is documented by Roman historian Flavius Josephus, he writes:
"...And the body was carried two hundred furlongs, to Herodium, where he had given order to be buried..." (The Wars of the Jews or History of the Destruction of Jerusalem. Book V. Chapter 33.1)

Flavius Josephus provides more clues about Herod's tomb which he calls Herod's monuments:
"So they threw down all the hedges and walls which the inhabitants had made about their gardens and groves of trees, and cut down all the fruit trees that lay between them and the wall of the city, and filled up all the hollow places and the chasms, and demolished the rocky precipices with iron instruments; and thereby made all the place level from Scopus to Herod's monuments, which adjoined to the pool called the Serpent's Pool."
