There has been scholarly discussion as to whether the inscription relates to the drawing. Once the figures have been properly identified, the better view seems to be that they do relate to one another; and this is true even if the inscription was later added above the drawing, as suggested by Pirhiya Beck in “The Drawings from Hornat Teiman (Kuntillet ‘Ajrud),” Tel Aviv 9 (1982), pp. 3–68, esp. p. 46.
