SAMSON SARCOPHAGUS. Bearing the name of “Samson,” an inscribed sarcophagus lid passed through Shapira’s antiquities shop. He attempted to sell it in London in 1877, but it was denounced as a forgery. The lid, now lost, measured about 4 by 1.5 feet and bore an inscription written in pseudo-Moabite script.
