One of the stone vessels discovered in Tomb of the Princess was this polished, 3.3-inch-tall sardonyx (layered onyx, alternating with yellow or orange carnelian) flask, left, which was probably modeled after similar metal flasks known from Byblos and Karum Kanesh in Anatolia. The gold jewelry included this nearly 7-inch-long stick pin, center, which has an eight-pointed star as its head; bracelets, right; and a probable nose ring (see photos of nose ring and the tomb of the princess) decorated with a diamond pattern of granulated gold. The bracelets and nose ring recall those given to Rebekah by Abraham’s servant when he realized he had fulfilled his mission to find a wife for Isaac (Genesis 24:22, 47).
