Gush Etzion inkwell discovery

The Jewish Press reports on a new archaeological discovery:
A rare archaeological find was discovered at the Horvat Brachot excavation site in Gush Etzion: a complete inkwell dating to the end of the Second Temple period.

The dig is conducted by the Archeology Command Unit in the Civil Administration in Judea and Samaria, in collaboration with Herzog College.

The inkwell, which was discovered inside a large building dating to the Second Temple period, is made of a clay cylinder with a flat base, a round handle, and a narrow opening with an inward-leaning rim through which the ink and pen were inserted.
Very impressive, and I hope to see it in the museums soon.

About me

  • I'm Avi Green
  • From Jerusalem, Israel
  • I was born in Pennsylvania in 1974, and moved to Israel in 1983. I also enjoyed reading a lot of comics when I was young, the first being Fantastic Four. I maintain a strong belief in the public's right to knowledge and accuracy in facts. I like to think of myself as a conservative-style version of Clark Kent. I don't expect to be perfect at the job, but I do my best.
