Ancient Biblical Seal of the Prophet Isaiah Reveals 2,700-Year-Old Tablet May Have Belonged to Holy Man

The clay seal dates back to the eighth century B.C. and was discovered in a Jerusalem excavation site, National Geographic reported. If experts’ hypotheses about the writing is correct, the half inch of oval clay would be the first physical reference to the prophet who counseled the Judean King Hezekiah—who ruled the ancient Middle Eastern kingdom from the late eighth to early seventh century B.C.
