“SON OF IMMER” reads this bulla (seal impression) from the seventh century B.C.E. (First Temple period). The house of Immer is a well-known priestly family in the Bible (Jeremiah 20:1; Ezra 2:37, 59; 10:20; Nehemiah 3:29; 7:40, 61; 11:13; 1 Chronicles 9:12; 24:14). The bulla was originally attached to a parcel and serves as evidence to the administrative activity that occurred in the First Temple.
