Khirbet Qeiyafa Ostracon

An illustration showing the markings of an ostracon (pottery sherd) from Khirbet Qeiyafa, Israel. The sherd is cited as evidence that the Hebrew language was in use from the 10th century BCE. The text has been interpreted as a social statement which concerns slaves, widows and orphans, although other interpretations have been posited. (Israel Museum, Jerusalem)
