Israel Successfully Solve the Mystery of Prophet Solomon’s ‘Treasure’ Lifestyle – 12 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – A team of Israeli archaeologists succeeded in finding traces of the remains of King Solomon, or known as Prophet Solomon in Islamic teachings. The ancient relic is in the form of a jar which was initially discovered along with the remains of six other large jars during excavations in the Ophel area, Jerusalem, in 2012.

Even though the ‘treasure’ was discovered 11 years ago, archaeologists were only able to solve the puzzle behind it in 2023. An archaeologist from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Daniel Vainstub, has succeeded in deciphering the meaning of words engraved on a fragment of the neck of an urn left over from the reign of King Solomon in Ancient Israel.

Over the past decade, more than 10 researchers have proposed the meaning of the word engraved on the neck of the urn, but there has never been a consensus. Launching from LiveScience, through published studies Jerusalem Journal of Archaeology, Dr. Daniel revealed that the words carved on the jug’s neck meant “Ladanium 5”.

“Ladanium 5” is a word that refers to the sap of an aromatic plant used to make incense or incense, namely Labdanum or Cistus Ladanifer.

He said that the writing was carved using Old South Arabian script in the Sabaean language. Generally, the Sabaean language was spoken in Biblical times in the Arabian Peninsula, specifically the Kingdom of Sheba which is now Yemen.

Archaeologists believe this writing to be the oldest writing written using Old South Arabic script found in Israel.

Apart from the fragments of the “Ladanium 5” jar, experts also found six other large jars during excavations or excavations for ancient objects in 2012 in Ophel, Jerusalem, Israel. Allegedly, this piece of jug comes from the 10th century BC (BC).

In their research report, researchers consider that the jugs are a sign of “clear ties” between King Salman and the Kingdom of Sheba.

According to the research, the Kingdom of Sheba played an important role in cultivating the plants needed to produce perfume and incense.

Meanwhile, at the same time, Solomon’s Kingdom controlled the trade routes that crossed the Negev desert to the Mediterranean docks, where goods were exported.

“Deciphering the inscription on this urn teaches us not only about the presence of a Sabaean speaker in Israel during the time of King Solomon, but also about the system of geopolitical relations in our region at that time,” said Daniel Vainstub.
