Definitely Dan. Professor Biran’s 1976 discovery of this 6-by-10-inch limestone tablet confirmed the identity of the site he was digging. The bilingual inscription in Greek (top three lines) and Aramaic (bottom line) refers to a person named Zoilos who made a vow to the “god who is in Dan,” or, in an alternative reading, to the “god of the Danites.” Found in Tel Dan’s sacred area, this votive inscription dates to the late third or early second centuries B.C. based on the style of the scripts.
