The Israel Antiquities Authority has announced the significant discovery of a seal from the First Temple period. Finding such seals is not very common; however, finding one that belonged to a woman is even more rare. The seal is made of semi-precious stone and bears the inscription 'to Elihana bat Gael' in ancient Hebrew. The owner of the seal seems to have been from the elite of society: 'She had legal status, allowing her to conduct business and possess property,' says the Antiquities Authority.
