An exception may be Ashyahu, the name of an Israelite king on a recently published ostracon (see Hershel Shanks, “Three Shekels for the Lord,” BAR 23:06).

A number of nonroyal biblical personages are also attested to in seals and bullae. See Tsvi Schneider, “Six Biblical Signatures,” BAR 17:04; Aharon Kempinski, “Jacob in History,” BAR 14:01; Hershel Shanks, “Jeremiah’s Scribe and Confidant Speaks from a Hoard of Clay Bullae,” BAR 13:05 and Josette Elayi, “Name of Deuteronomy’s Author Found on Seal Ring,” BAR 13:05.
