An Archeological Find

First Temple seal found in Jerusalem, an article from The Jerusalem Post, tells of the discovery of a stone seal during an archeological excavation. The seal bears the name of a family who were servants in the First Temple, exiled to Babylonia and then returned to Jerusalem. The name Temech is engraved on the seal which is about 2,500 years old. The Temech family is mentioned in the Book of Nehemiah.
