1204 – Hammurabi in Egypt


An exciting find at an ongoing excavation in Egypt. Austrian archaeologist Manfred Bietak has dug up a seal impression connected to the reign of Hammurabi in Babylonia in his excavation at Tel Al-Dabaa in the Nile delta. Tel Al-Dabaa is a very important excavation of the Egyptian capital city once called Avaris and later Pi-Ramses, located in the land of Goshen area where the Israelites had settled.
