A brand new old inscription: Arad ostracon 16 rediscovered via multispectral imaging


Journal Article

© 2017 American Schools of Oriental Research. Arad Ostracon 16 is part of the Elyashiv Archive, dated to ca. 600 b.c. It was published as bearing an inscription on the recto only.

We present here the new images and offer our new reading and reinterpretation of the ostracon.
