Thanks for the info on the seal. I assume you mean Sahab, just SE of Amman, which has yielded Iron Age II architecture and tombs. Yes, I can translate it. The script is “Phoenician” (or Paleo-Hebrew) and the seal says “belonging to Barakyahu, son of Neryahu.” With a Yahwistic name, this would appear to be an Israelite seal. There is a bullae (clay stamp seal) from Jerusalem that translates as “belonging to Barakyahu, son of Neryahu the scribe.” One of these is in the Israel museum, while another which is a copy was declared a modern forgery.
