I always thought that the last of the Zealots committed suicide by "falling on their swords", not by jumping off the cliffs. Again, according to what I read years ago, the Zealots thught that they were pretty secure against a Roman seige; the Romans, with nothing but time and plenty of time on their hands and lots of desrt sand under their feet, did what Roman soldiers did exceedingly well - they began to build a huge ramp from the desert floor up to the Masada plateau. The Zealots saw the handwriting on the wall and committed suicide rather than fight the Romans. Perhaps my understanding is incorrect, but the Zealots don't appear actually to have fought the Romans. I'm not sure that I'd rate that as a "heroic stand".

At the end of this long and devastating siege, Eleazar ben Yair and the last 900 survivors flung themselves off the cliff rather than surrender to the Romans.
