(Worthy News) - A unique 2,000-year-old stone inscription unearthed in Israel has thrilled archaeologists.
The find is the first full spelling of “Jerusalem” on a stone inscription, archaeologists recently confirmed. The artifact was found last winter during an excavation in the area of Jerusalem’s International Convention Center, known as Binyanei Ha'Uma.
Part of a stone column, the inscription mentions Jerusalem, written in Hebrew letters, and uses the same spelling as today, according to the Israel Antiquities Authority. [ Source: Fox News (Read More...) ]
