The earliest known stone inscription of the Ten Commandments has been put up for sale in an auction in California, USA. According to ABC news the 2 feet by 2 feet, 90Kgs white marble tablet dates back to the 4th century AD with the commandments written in an early Hebrew script called Samaritan.
The opening for the stone tablet is $250,000, however the eventual buyer must display it in public according to an agreement the United States had with Israel since it is a ‘national treasure’
“The tablet’s significance is testament to the deep roots and enduring power of the Commandments that still form the basis of three of the world’s great religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam,” says David Michaels, director of ancient coins for Heritage Auctions, who will be conducting the sale.
