During the time, Josephus was the head of the Galilean revolutionaries' army (66 - c. 70 CE), and tells of fortifying the city which served as his headquarters. He counted some 40,000 men from within it among his supporters.Josephus also recounts imprisoning 600 members of the Roman council at Tiberias in Taricheae, which served as a Zealot stronghold until it fell to Romans in 67 CE. Also recorded are the deaths of 6,700 Jews in the battle with Vespasian's army in 67 CE, and the fate of 1,200 more who had surrendered, and were then led out to the stadium in Tiberias where they were executed.
