Updates on the Horned Altar of Gath
In the cleaning of pottery found in the vicinity of the horned altar of Gath, archaeologists have discovered an inscription. Aren Maeir reports that several letters written in ink have been identified, including a mem (“m”).
Maeir has also posted a three-minute video about the two-horned altar in which he describes the context of the find, the date of its destruction, and the significance of the object.
The altar has now been removed from the site and is in the lab at Bar-Ilan University.
