This article presents the context and reading of a previously unpublished milestone found close to the northeastern shore of the Sea of Galilee. The reading revealed that the milestone is dated to the reign of Maximinus Thrax. The context in which it was found, next to remains of a road in the Bethsaida Valley, suggests an alternative route for the road that run through the valley. The proposed course of the road gives new insight into the controversy regarding identification of the Roman Bethsaida-Julias.
