Re: Golb's Theory

Esti Eshel presented her find in Manchester on Tuesday. She reads yh_d,
though it could be yod aleph dalet (anyone know a personal name that begins
like that?) All present saw pictures of the ostracon. Surprise, surprise,
it turned up after a bulldozer had been at work. I hope it is genuine and
the readinhg holds; we need some clarification somewhere. Still, even that
leaves a lot of explanation to be done.
