The silver talisman dates to c. 700 BCE and is inscribed
in palaeohebrew with a version of the priestly benediction
of Numbers 6:24-26.  Whether this was a benediction later
included in Numbers or whether this is the oldest biblical
text is up to question.  I believe the artifact is in the
Rockefeller Museum..I cant find my reference on its
provenance...den's too messy (g).  I do have a JPG of it
which I will send you privately attached to e-mail.
