Rare papyrus document unearthed in US, Israel Antiquities Authority releases 12 photos International News: AFPBB News

The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) this week identified the third rare ancient Hebrew papyrus manuscript from the First Temple period around 2,700 years ago and released the fragments. It had been located in the United States by archaeologists and handed over to Israel by its owner.

The four-line document begins with “Send to Ishmael”, but the rest of the text is incomplete and illegible. “We don’t know what went where,” Joe Uziel of the Judean Desert Records Division told the Antiquities Authority.
