(Fox 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.
Written in the ancient Aramaic language, the inscription reads: “Hananiah, son of Dodalos of Jerusalem.”
