9090the 'archer seal from Jerusalem'
- Oct 30, 2008Here's what Robert Deutsch has noted in comments (here --
"Seal from Jerusalem ?
The seal looks fake.
The iconography looks like taken from the double
walking archers depicted on the Lachish reliefs.
Look at the double quivers on the seal: it should belong to two archers.
Moreover, the script looks clumsy.
One has to check if it is not a forgery planted at the site."
Perhaps he's right.
