According to YNet news, ongoing rescue excavations conducted in
Nahal Tut, in the vicinity of Jokneam, as part of the Road 6 Highway project.
An administrative center from the First Temple period and a dense Jewish
village from the Second Temple period were found, where the walls were
uncovered still standing. The finds include a First Temple period stone seal
reading: "lmk)x (myxy", which was apparently worn on a necklace, with four
pomegranates on the upper line, and measuring 1 cm by 1.5 cms. Also,
many stone, metal and clay vessels, were uncovered, including "lmlk" jar
handles naming Hebron and Zif.
