by Benyamin Cohen for FromtheGrapevine
Rare artifact going on display for public to see.
Sure, Jerusalem is known as an ancient city. But rarely has the archaeological spotlight shone on the name of the city itself. That is, until today. Archaeologists have unearthed a 2,000 year-old stone inscription that notes the full Hebrew spelling of the word Jerusalem. Previous artifacts have either been in Aramaic or used an abbreviated version of Jerusalem. The discovery was announced today at a joint press conference of the Israel Antiquities Authority and the Israel Museum.
