By Jonna Ivin-Patton

On Monday, Israeli archaeologists showed 2,700-year-old clay seal impression. It is believed to have belonged to a  biblical governor of Jerusalem. Excavator Shlomit Weksler-Bdolah said about the find:

 “It supports the Biblical rendering of the existence of a governor of the city in Jerusalem 2,700 years ago."

The clay seal is thought to have been  attached to a shipment or sent as a souvenir on behalf of the governor. At that time in Jerusalem is was the highest local position to be held. 

Not everyone on Twitter believed what the object was. Some folks came to their own conclusions.
