The Siloam Inscription

THE HOLY LAND PHOTOS' BLOG: Siloam Inscription from Hezekiah’s Tunnel.

Regular PaleoJudaica readers, I know you are well familiar with the Siloam Inscription and the negotiations with Turkey in recent years for its return to Israel. But in the linked post, Carl Rasmussen shares a nice photo he himself took of it. It gives you a sense of what it looks like in front of you - and how difficult it is to read. You can click on the image to enlarge it. Have a look.

My past posts on the Siloam Inscription are here and links. It is a Hebrew inscription from c. 700 B.C.E. found in Hezekiah's Tunnel (associated with the Pool of Siloam) in Jerusalem.
