Israeli archaeologists unveil 'Solomon's Seal' – an ancient amulet protecting from evil

The rider is featured throwing a spear towards a female figure that experts have identified as Gello – a female demon from Greek mythology.

An inscription around the rider reads in Greek: “The One God who Conquers Evil”.

Below the horse, you can just make out the Greek letters “I A W Θ”, which spell out the name of the Hebrew God Y-H-W-H or Yahweh.

On the amulet’s reverse, is an eye pierced by multiple arrows and surrounded by two lions, a snake, a scorpion and a bird.

Another Greek inscription features on this side and reads: “One God.”
