Seal of Hezekiah

The stamped clay seal, southern wall of the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

circa 710 CE

One of the Hezekiah's seals found in Ophel excavations by Eilat Mazar. The bulla measures just over a centimeter in diameter bears a seal impression depicting a two-winged sun disk flanked by ankh symbols and containing a Hebrew inscription that reads “Belonging to Hezekiah, (son of) Ahaz, king of Judah.” The bulla was discovered along with 33 other stamped bullae during wet-sifting of dirt from a refuse dump located next to a 10th-century B.C.E. royal building in the Ophel.
