Rare Seal Found

30 10 2008

A 7th century BCE seal was found in excavations being carried out by the IAA next to the Temple Mount.  The seal is very cool, depicting an archaer and bearing the name Hagab.  The seal was found in a building dating to the same time period.  This area overlooked the Temple Mount and is located to its west.  The area would have been the edge of what Josephus later would call the Upper City, where the priestly and upper class lived.
