SEAL FROM THE DAYS OF DAVID AND SOLOMON. This rare stone seal from the 10th century B.C.E. is the first of its kind found in Jerusalem. Probably used to seal documents, its circular sealing surface is about the size of a fingertip and features one animal on top of another, perhaps predator and prey. A 10-year-old boy named Matvei Tcepliaev from Russia unearthed this unprecedented find.
