"LAMELECH" JAR HANDLE OF KING HEZEKIAH, "HEBRON"

Type H2D, See here for research:  http://lmlk.com/research/lmlk_hbrn.htm    Also see additional pictures at bottom.

Circa 700 B.C.E.

This jar handle was from the city of Chevron (Hebron) and is struck with the kings insignia and several readable letters. When perfect they are even MUCH rarer and sell for thousands. This is quite a decent specimen with four of eight letters clearly visible as well as a fifth.

The insignia read L M L H , H B R N. The L H, comprising the last two letters of the word 'king', can be clearly seen on the upper left. The R N of the word 'Hebron' are VERY WELL engraved and very clear on the lower left. The B of 'Hebron' is also seen to the bottom right of the eagle.

The artifact measures: Length = 50mm (5cm), Width = 67mm at widest, 30mm at narrowest. Thickness = 27mm at top, 13mm at bottom.

An excellent and affordable opportunity to own a piece of Biblical History.
