A New Discovery In Jerusalem

Via Joseph Lauer

This morning, Monday, January 1, 2018, the IAA circulated English and Hebrew press releases titled “”[Belonging] To the Governor of the City”: A Unique Stamped piece of clay from the First Temple Period, Inscribed in Ancient Hebrew Script, was Unearthed in the Israel Antiquities Authority Excavations in the Western Wall Plaza, Jerusalem.” The releases also announced that “The important find was discovered over the course of the IAA’s excavations at the site, together with the Western Wall Heritage Foundation. According to the excavator, Dr. Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah, “the Bible mentions two governors of Jerusalem, and this finding thus reveals that such a position was actually held by someone in the city some 2700 years ago.””

Unfortunately, the release may not be read at the IAA’s website as “The IAA websites are temporarily unavailable due to maintenance”.  The IAA has posted the English release and a video to Facebook.
