Former pride of the Israel Museum, this small ivory pomegranate is inscribed in ancient Hebrew around the neck with the words “Belonging to the Tem[ple of Yahwe]h, holy to the priests.” Its authenticity was originally confirmed by expert epigraphers André Lemaire of the Sorbonne and the late Nahman Avigad but was later called into question by none other than Yuval Goren. If authentic, this may be a scepter head from Solomon’s Temple.
