Two days ago, I mentioned how playing with Photoshop with pictures of the inscription from Area D did wonders. I was immediately swamped with requests to show pictures of the inscription!
Since I am a nice guy, and in the spirit of the holidays (Hanukkah, Christmas, Kwanza, etc.), I decided to post something that will at least partially fulfill these requests (and will whet the appetite for more… :-).
Since I already had mentioned in a previous post that there is a very nice “mem” in the inscription, here is a picture of the “mem” before and after the Photoshop manipulation!
For those of you who are familiar with the chronological typology of the Hebrew alphabet, you’ll see that this fits in very well with other 9th/early 8th cent. inscriptions.
