Overview

Shlomo Moussaieff, a Bible scholar and antiquities collector, has amassed one of the world’s finest collections of ancient Jewish and Bible-related artifacts. Among the estimated 60,000 items in his collection are personal seals from the First and Second Temple periods and hundreds of cuneiform clay tablets from 3000 to 1000 BC. In these volumes, archaeologist Robert Deutsch and epigrapher André Lemaire delve into the collection, studying and cataloging the artifacts, dividing them into categories, and noting questionable and possibly forged seals. The wealth of epigraphic material gives Moussaieff’s collection an extraordinary amount of historical significance, making this an excellent resource for biblical historians.
