I discuss the discovery of a new seal impression in Reformation Weekly.

This clay bulla was bought a long time ago by a private collector on the antiquities market. Its authenticity is thus uncertain; chemical analyses are said to be positive, but I haven’t seen them. The inscription is partly erased and seems a bit odd; it could be an imitation or the same as that of another seal, found a century ago in Megiddo, and which belonged to a minister of King Jeroboam II of Israel (ca. 787-747 BCE; cf. 2 Kings 14).
