IAA refutes authenticity accusations of ‘Jerusalem’ papyrus inscription

The Israel Antiquities Authority on Sunday denied accusations by two prominent archeologists questioning the authenticity of last week’s unveiled 7th century papyrus document, purportedly inscribed with the earliest known reference to Jerusalem outside the Bible.

Prof. Aren Maeir of Bar-Ilan University, and Prof. Christopher Rollston of George Washington University, called into question the legitimacy of the relic two days after it was revealed by the IAA and Hebrew University at a Jerusalem press conference.
