Fragmentary bulla from ancient Edom ?
This fragmentary light brownish bullae dates to the 7th - 6th century BC and was probably stamped by an ancient Edomite scribe. It was allegedly found within the territory of Israel. It contains a simple design of a zig-zag pattern which is a popular design on Edomite seals. The back shows the imprints of the string which was attached to the original papyrus scroll. The kingdom of Edom was the southern neighbour of monarchic Judah. According to biblical tradition the Edomites were the descendants of Jacob’s brother Esau. The Kingdom of Edom was annexed to Babylon in 553/2 BC when Nabonidus conquered the region.
