THE BES FAMILY BULLAE. Seven seal impressions (bullae) representing three generations of the Bes family were found together with the bulla of King Hezekiah. The Bes family appears to have been involved in the royal administration or was a supplier. The family’s bullae sealed the coarsely woven linen bags held in the Building of the Royal Bakers.
