The story of the Hasmonean Kingdom…truth or myth?

Regarding the story of the Hasmonean Kingdom, the Hasmonean dynasty ruled Judea between 37 BC and 140 BC during ancient times, and the Hasmonean Kingdom ended after the Roman Empire invaded it.

In 2019, the occupation announced an archaeological site containing a cemetery belonging to the Hasmonean dynasty, and a wine production site.

The cemetery, which Israel claimed to have discovered in 2019, said it dates back to the era of the Hasmonean Kingdom.

Regarding the truth about the existence of the Hasmonean Kingdom or the Jewish Hasmonean dynasty, the primary source of these myths was the Jew Flavius, who was imprisoned by the Romans and then cooperated with them to become a Roman citizen and military officer. He wrote that information about the Hasmonean Kingdom and the curse of the eighth decade in his first book on the Jewish Wars in Rome, and that This prompted many to question his credibility as a historian.
