	You are correct on the epigraphic attestation of Nazareth.  The earliest
that I can recall is the Caesarean inscription on priestly courses c. 300 CE.  The
strongest evidence for Nazareth as a settlement during the Roman period are the
tombs, most of the kokim type and four of the "rolling stone" type no later then 70
