Text Content

Modern Title Illegible Ostracon.
Summary of Content Although lines of the text are visible, they have not be deciphered. The document is written in an ink that is not visible in IR. This implies that it is from the first (or later) centuries of the common era, during which it was common to use ink mixtures which are not picked up by IR light, but this is merely a guess. The script looks like it may be Punic, but one cannot yet rule out Demotic.
