Along the lower eastern slope of the City of David, Jerusalem, a thick layer of late Iron Age debris, likely dating from the destruction of the city in 586 BCE, has been extensively excavated, overlying and burying the earlier fortifications surrounding the Gihon Spring. This layer, labelled Str. 7, yielded many seventh-century BCE finds, including lamps, figurines, pottery and a sherd of a bowl inscribed with a personal name. This paper deals with the inscription and the possibilities of its reading.
