billThe publication of a new inscription from Theban Tomb 99 sheds new light on the early history of the Hebrew Alphabet.  This ostracon is a bilingual “abecedary” written in Egyptian Hieroglyphic and Semitic.  It gives further evidence for an Egyptian connection to the origins of the early Hebrew alphabet.
