Title: Nouvelles remarques sur la datation des estampilles lmlk
Author(s): LEMAIRE, André
Volume: 63 Date: 2021
After a critical review of the dating of the lmlk seal-impressions during the last fifty years (8th or 7th century BCE?), the publication of seal-impressions from old excavations in Tell Sheikh Ahmed el-'Areini, Tell Judeideh, Tell eṣ-Ṣâfi, Tell Zakaria and Gezer, as well as recent publications of new seal-impressions, show that the so-called 'late' lmlk seal-impressions (IIb, IIc, XII) were probably used in the Shephelah before Sennacherib’s conquest in 701 BCE.
