“Belonging to msŒkt son of vhzm” reads the Edomite inscription on the delicately engraved stone seal. Although not found among the crushed cultic objects in the pit, this seal, showing two robed figures on either side of an altar, may have belonged to an Edomite priest: One figure (on the right)—perhaps the priest—appears to be making a blessing, the other to be making an offering.
