The Saudi Commission for Tourism and National Heritage recently announced the discovery of a 2550-year-old inscription from the Babylonian king, Nabonidus. The engraving was carved on a basalt stone at Al Hait in the Hail region of northern Saudi Arabia. It depicts King Nabonidus holding a scepter along with images of a snake, flower, a stylized sun-disk with wings, and a crescent moon. Beneath the images are 26 lines of cuneiform text, the longest cuneiform inscription ever discovered in Saudi Arabia. It has not been fully deciphered or published yet. While Nabonidus is not mentioned by name in the Bible, his son and co-regent, Belshazzar, was on the throne in Babylon when Daniel read the writing on the wall to him the night the city fell to the Medes and Persians (Dan. 5).
