Caesarea: residence of Pontius Pilatus
The book of Acts refers repeatedly to the city. Peter visited Caesarea (Acts 10). Paul was held prisoner in Caesarea for two years (Acts 23:23-23:30), while awaiting trial. It was from here that Paul sailed to Rome (Acts 27:1). Origen and Eusebius were important Christians of Caesarea. The city was eventually destroyed in the Moslem invasions of 638.
The name Pilatus appears on a bloc of stone
