Chapter Summary

In "The Judahite Rock-Cut Tomb: Family Response at a Time of Change" it is argued that this tomb form was the sociological and ideological response of the extended family the biblical bet 'ab to a series of late Iron Age II threats upon its unity and coherence. The seal discussed in Jezebel's Royal Seal is of unknown provenance and appeared in the scholarly investigation in the early 1960s. Symbolism in the Samaria ivories and architecture discusses the different cultural influences and motifs, and explains their presence. After a description of the chalice's find context, its appearance and supposed function, this chapter discusses some comparable objects from other sites.
