Furnace to melt glass of Beth She'arim slab was 1700°C.
The pipes shown in the image are modern, not ancient.
Photo shows Dr. Robert Brill obtaining a sample of the limestone bottom of the tank in which the glass was melted. The knife, shown, was used to scrape a sample off of an area nicknamed "millipede alley," because there were so many insects on it.
