    Cuneiform inscription from the Tas-Silg sanctuary in Malta

    Excavations conducted by the Università "La Sapienza" in Rome (in cooperation with the Università Cattolica in Milan and with the Università del Salento) in the Tas-Silg sanctuary in Malta, brought to light a 13th-century B.C. Babylonian inscription (a crescent-moon shaped agate stone). The sanctuary was used from the the third millennium B.C. to the first millennium B.C. The inscription has been interpreted and dated by Father Werner Mayer of the Pontifical Biblical Institute in Rome.More information here.
