UNDER THE MICROSCOPE. In a meeting at the Israel Museum on June 15, 2015, paleographers Ada Yardeni (center), André Lemaire (right) and Robert Deutsch (left) met to examine the ivory pomegranate inscription. The previous year, Yardeni had examined the inscription, and, focusing on the letter taw, could not confirm its authenticity. Here she agreed to take another look.
