Once upon a time, when the Egyptians ruled Canaan over 3,000 years ago, there was a great palace surrounded by houses and streets not far from the estuary of HaBesor Stream.

The pendant is from the collection of the Israel Antiquities Authority. It is in the permanent exhibition at the Rockefeller Archaeological Museum, which is part of the Israel Museum.SHOW MORE
