Professor Tom Meyer drew attention to the fact that the stories concerning the Jewish king Hezekiah, given in the Bible, are quite accurate. This is true, among other things, for the ruler's plans to strengthen his own power in Jerusalem. While excavating at Ophel, scientists came across a seal associated with the monarch. The artifact has a round shape and was created in the 8th century BC. On the surface of the find was the name of a character from the Bible. Usually such seals were found only on the black market, but the authenticity of the artifact is beyond doubt.
The product could be used for government affairs, decrees, etc. They were most often worn around the neck or attached to a bracelet on the wrist. The seal contains not only the name of Hezekiah, but also the royal ornament.
