A 2700-year old 'bulla' or clay seal, bearing the inscription 'Hezekiah [son of] Ahaz, king of Judah,' was recently discovered in Jerusalem. While other seals purported to belong to King Hezekiah have surfaced on the antiquities market, this is the first bulla of an Israelite or Judean king that has been unearthed in an actual archaeological excavation. The bulla preserves an impression of papyrus fibers on the back, which suggests the seal once enclosed a document perhaps signed by the king himself.
