“Gazelle Seal”
A two-sided stone seal. On one side of the seal, the name of the owner of the seal appeared, but it is illegible. One the other side is the shape of a gazelle with short horns whose head is turned slightly to the right. The seal was used to close documents thus ensuring the originality and confidentiality of the message. The bulla (clay seal impression) is formed via the impressing of this seal into soft clay. This seal was found during the Temple Mount Sifting Operation at the Emek Tzurim National Park on the Mount of Olives and dates to the middle of the First Temple period, the 7th or 8th century BCE.
