Tel Aviv, May 1 (IANS) A rare seal from the First Temple period has been uncovered in an archaeological excavation in Jerusalem, authorities said Tuesday.

 

The seal was found among the remains of a structure currently being dug under Robinson's Arch, a site adjacent to the Western Wall in Jerusalem.

 

The personal seal is made of semi-precious stone and is engraved with the name of its owner: "To Matanyahu Son of Ho", the Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) said.

 

A similar seal bearing the name "Netanyahu Son of Yaush" in ancient Hebrew script was discovered at the site in March 2008.

 

The seal measures two centimetres in diameter and is inlaid in a ring. Seals of this kind were commonly used by senior officials in the First Temple era for signing documents, Xinhua reported.
