hezekiah's seal

Archaeologists in Israel have found a seal belonging to King Hezekiah from the 8th century BC. The inscription on the seal states - "Hezekiah, son of Ahaz, king of Judah".

"The find strengthens what we already know from the Bible about Hezekiah. It's the closest we can get to something that was actually used and held by King Hezekiah himself. This is the single greatest item I have ever found."  - Eilat Mazar, Director of Excavations, City of David site in Jerusalem
