Ancient kings sealed

Ancient kings sealed important correspondence with a lump of wet clay, stamping the clay with a seal. These seals were often engraved in semi-precious stones such as brown carnelian. The seals of the kings of Judah featured handles similar to this one.

A dump site is the last place you would expect to find an 8th century B.C. seal for a papyrus document signed by one of the kings of Judah.

Perhaps that’s why it has taken 2,700 years for the piece of clay inscribed with King Hezekiah’s seal to be discovered in Jerusalem.
It is believed to be the first-ever seal — also referred to as a “bulla” — from an Israeli or Judean King to be discovered by archaeologists.
