Mendel-Geberovich, A; Faigenbaum-Golovin, S; Shaus, A; Sober, B; Cordonsky, M; Piasetzky, E; Finkelstein, I; Milevski, I, A renewed reading of Hebrew ostraca from cave A-2 at ramat beit shemesh (Nahal Yarmut), based on multispectral imaging, Vetus Testamentum, vol. 69 no. 4-5 (January, 2019), pp. 682-701 [doi]

    © Koninklijke Brill NV, Leiden, 2019 Three Hebrew ostraca, found near Khirbet Zanu' (Horvat Zanoah) and published by Milevski and Naveh in 2005, were re-imaged using a high-end multispectral imaging technique. The re-imaging yielded dozens of changed or added characters and resulted in renewed, larger and improved readings, hereby published. In addition, we interpret the texts of the ostraca and place them in the context of the economy and administration of Judah in the seventh century BCE.
