Photo's description:
en:Tell es-Safi dig staff site: http://faculty.biu.ac.il/~maeira/Goliath/Goliath%20Inscription.html. During the excavation season of 2005, in a well-defined context dating to the 10th or early 9th century BCE, a sherd with a short inscription was found. The inscription is written in archaic “Proto-Canaanite” letters, but has in it two non-Semitic names: Alwt and Wlt. These names are strikingly similar to a well known Philistine name – Goliath.
