Though not necessarily an Israelite object, this object was uncovered around Samaria and dates to the Iron Age II (8th century BCE). It is 3.9 cm long (The Israel Museum, Jerusalem). The image is significant because it is evidence—among other objects—for interactions between Israel and Assyria during the 8th century BCE.
