    Earliest Stone Carving of “Yerushalayim” Found.

    Earliest known stone carving of Hebrew word ‘Jerusalem’ found near city entrance
    By Amanda Borschel-Dan Today, 3:27 pm

    The earliest stone inscription bearing the full spelling of the modern Hebrew word for Jerusalem was unveiled on Tuesday at the Israel Museum, in the capital.

    While any inscription dating from the Second Temple period is of note, the 2,000-year-old three-line inscription on a waist-high column — reading “Hananiah son of Dodalos of Jerusalem” — is exceptional, as it is the first known stone carving of the word “Yerushalayim,” which is how the Israeli capital’s name is pronounced in Hebrew today.
