Impression of King Hezekiah’s Royal Seal Discovered

Important and fascinating archaeological discovery!

“02/12/2015
First seal impression of an Israelite or Judean king ever exposed in situ in a scientific archaeological excavation.

Discovery brings to life the Biblical narratives about King Hezekiah and the activity conducted during his lifetime in Jerusalem’s 1st Temple Period Royal Quarter.
Dr. Eilat Mazar said: “Although seal impressions bearing King Hezekiah’s name have already been known from the antiquities market since the middle of the 1990s, some with a winged scarab (dung beetle) symbol and others with a winged sun, this is the first time that a seal impression of an Israelite or Judean king has ever come to light in a scientific archaeological excavation.””
