A SYRIAC INSCRIPTION has been found in Urfa, Turkey. The report is in Turkish, but here's a Google translation. Excerpt:
Workers in the field of business lasting Beyazkule plow tractors come into contact with the hard object was noticed.

So the workers gained ground, half a meter below the ground one meter 30 centimeters long, 60 inches wide and weighs approximately 100 pounds came across the stone mass.
Looks like a stone monumental inscription. No word yet on what it says, although the photo looks fairly readable.

Urfa is the site of ancient Edessa, where the Aramaic dialect that became the literary language Syriac developed.
