      Joseph Lauer informs us that

      The Ha'aretz Hebrew Language Edition has a short article (with
      picture) regarding the discovery Thursday in IAA excavations in
      Tiberias of a sixth-century bulla with the impression of a face,
      likely of Jesus. The reverse of the bulla has a crucifix and the
      abbreviation of the name Christus. The bulla was found by two
      volunteers, workers at the United States and British embassies. The
      article quotes Prof. Yizhar Hirschfeld of the Hebrew University, who
      is directing the excavations. A number of similar bullae were found
      in Caesarea, the ancient provincial capital, testifying to the
      connection between Tiberias and Caesarea.

      Thanks Joseph!
