Unless there is a better photograph of this stone, I cannot tell if
there is any Hebrew.  I see some Palaeo-Hebrew characters and some
pre-Herodian looking Aramaic square script...but unless there is a
lot of disfigurement, I am also seeing some "Joseph Smith-type"
Ancient stelae like this one is purported to be get a lot of
attention.  Most of us can recite the Siloam inscription and the
Mesha stone by heart.
Why have I not heard of this thingy before?
