2,600 Year-Old Seal Bearing Name Of “Servant of the King” Found in City of David

A clay seal bearing the inscription, “Natan-Melech, servant of the king” was found in the City of David. The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced the find, dating it to the First Temple period. Natan Melech is mentioned in the book of II Kings as a servant of King Josiah.  He lived near the entrance to the Temple, close to the courtyard where the horses had been kept that were used in sun-worship before Josiah disposed of both the horses and the chariots that they had pulled.

The seal impression that was uncovered was deciphered by Dr. Mendel-Geberovich, who dates it to the middle of the seventh century to the beginning of the sixth century BCE.

“Although it is not possible to determine with complete certainty that the Nathan-Melechwho is mentioned in the Bible was in fact the owner of the stamp, it is impossible to ignore some of the details that link them together,” Mendel-Geberovich said in a statement.
