TUNNEL VISION. The Siloam Tunnel Inscription commemorates the digging of the Siloam Tunnel, which brought water from the Gihon Spring to the Pool of Siloam within the walls of ancient Jerusalem. Two teams chiseled the water channel from bedrock. They started at opposite ends and met in the middle, as recounted in the inscription. Written in Old Hebrew, the inscription dates to c. 700 B.C.E.
