Israeli archaeologists have found a 2,700-year-old clay seal imprinted with Hebrew images and words that may have belonged to a biblical governor of Jerusalem.

The stampround and button-sized was found in a building in the Jerusalem Old City, near the Wailing Wall, and dates from the 7th century BC, the time of the First Jewish Temple, the Israel Antiquities Authority said.

On one side it shows two men dressed in robes, facing each other as if it were a mirror, and on the other an inscription in ancient Hebrew that says «Governor of the City«.

Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah, an archaeologist at the institution and responsible for the work on the Western Wall plaza, explained that it is “A very rare find«, Being very important because«So far we only know the expression 'Governor of the City' (of Jerusalem) found in the Bible«.

«It is the first time that we give an archaeological context to the Governor of Jerusalem«, Explained Weksler-Bdolah, where although neither his name nor that of Jerusalem is mentioned, everything indicates that he refers to the Holy city.

After studying History at the University and after many previous tests, Red Historia was born, a project that emerged as a means of dissemination where you can find the most important news of archeology, history and humanities, as well as articles of interest, curiosities and much more. In short, a meeting point for everyone where they can share information and continue learning.
