Israel Secretly Keeps Prophet Solomon’s Treasures, For What? News – 3 hours ago

Jakarta, CNBC Indonesia – In the holy book Al-Qur’an, Prophet Solomon is said to be the third king of Israel and a wise ruler. In Jewish teachings, Prophet Solomon is known as King Solomon, son of King David.

As king and ruler, Prophet Solomon was said to have had abundant wealth. Many people even believe that there is a great treasure hidden somewhere, which contains the wealth of the king whose full name was Sulaiman Ibnu Daud.

In 2012, a team of Israeli archaeologists managed to find traces of King Solomon’s remains in the form of an urn during excavations in the Ophel area, Jerusalem. Even though the ‘treasure’ was discovered 11 years ago, archaeologists were only able to solve the puzzle behind it in 2023.


An archaeologist from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Daniel Vainstub, has succeeded in deciphering the meaning of words engraved on a fragment of the neck of an urn left over from the reign of King Solomon in Ancient Israel.

Over the past ten years, more than 10 researchers have proposed the meaning of the word engraved on the neck of the urn, but there has never been a consensus. Reporting from Live Science, through a study published in the Jerusalem Journal of Archaeology, Daniel revealed that the words carved on the neck of the jug mean ‘Ladanium 5’.

‘Ladanium 5’ is a word that refers to the sap of an aromatic plant used to make incense or incense, namely Labdanum or Cistus Ladanifer.

He said that the writing was carved using Old South Arabian script in the Sabaean language. Generally, the Sabaean language was spoken in Biblical times in the Arabian Peninsula, specifically the Kingdom of Sheba which is now Yemen.

Archaeologists believe this writing to be the oldest writing written using Old South Arabic script found in Israel.

Apart from the fragments of the ‘Ladanium 5’ jar, experts also found six other large jars during excavations or excavations for ancient objects in 2012 in Ophel, Jerusalem, Israel. Allegedly, this piece of jug comes from the 10th century BC (BC).

In their research report, researchers consider that the jugs are a sign of “clear ties” between King Salman and the Kingdom of Sheba. According to the research, the Kingdom of Sheba played an important role in cultivating the plants needed to produce perfume and incense.

Meanwhile, at the same time, Solomon’s Kingdom controlled the trade routes that crossed the Negev desert to the Mediterranean docks, where goods were exported.

According to Daniel, deciphering the inscription on the urn not only teaches about the presence of a Sabaean speaker in Israel during the time of King Solomon, but also about the system of geopolitical relations in the region in the past.
