Rare Biblical inscription discovered

A rare proto-Hebrew inscription from the era of King David has been found in Khirbet Qeiyafa, near Bet Shemesh. “Eshbaal ben Beda” was fired on an earthenware pot. The name Eshbaal (also that of a son of King Saul) was discontinued later, due to associations with a heathen god.
