F.H. Cryer, “On the Recently-Discovered ‘House of David’ Inscription,” Scandinavian Journal of the Old Testament 8 (1994), pp. 14–15. After defending the suggestion at length, Cryer concludes, “For the record, I doubt that the inscription is a forgery,” citing Joseph Naveh’s expertise in epigraphy and the “nuance…surrounding the language of the inscription.” Cryer, however, also attempts to downdate the inscription to the eighth or seventh century B.C.E.
