An intriguing detail about the Nathan-Melekh bulla

THE BIBLE PLACES BLOG: Seal Impression of Nathan-Melech Discovered in Jerusalem. Yesterday I noted the story of the two Hebrew inscriptions, a stone seal and an clay bullae, uncovered at the City of David’s Givati Parking Lot. The bulla mentions a royal administrator named Nathan-Melekh, who quite possibly appears in the Bible in 2 Kings 23:11.

Now Todd Bolen has highlighted something about the bulla that, as far as I can tell, no media article has noticed. Follow the link to read about it. No fooling.
