Professor Shlomo Bunimovitz and Dr. Zvi Lederman, directors of the excavation from Tel Aviv University, Israel reported that while recent unearthing at Tel Beit Shemesh, they found a small circular stone seal, less than an inch in diameter, chiseled out on which is a man with long hair fighting a subtle figure.   The seal was excavated near the Sorekm River, which served as a border between Israel and Palestine in primeval Old Testament times.

Earlier this year, in July, archeologists discovered Samson’s image on an atypical mosaic in a synagogue in Huqoq; an ancient Jewish village located just a few miles west of Capernaum, in Galilee.
