Garstag in 2. Archaeology: Unwritten Material 25 1930-36, and then K. Kenyon in 1952-58. A number of finds suggest that the site was occupied during Persian times (pace OEANE, III: 224). These include some Attic pottery dated to the fifth-fourth centuries and a number ofyh andyh(w)d seals. The dating of a seal with the inscription 'wryw/yhwd ('Uriyau/Yehud') is disputed, though the present consensus is that it is from the Persian period. Another which may be aphw' ('governor') seal has the inscription lyhw 'zr ('to Yeho'ezer').

Of 354 Judaean settlements in existence in the late eighth century and destroyed, only 39 are presently known to have been rebuilt in the seventh century (ALB II: 142; see also the survey in I. Finkelstein 1994).

Subsequent study may show some sources—especially secondary sources—are too problematic to use. The point is that we make judgments a posteriori, not a priori. The biblical text is problematic, as usual. As noted in some of my other writings, I find the Ezra material very problematic, not because I decided this in advance but because this is the result of analysis of the text. On the other hand, I think we do have some first-hand information in the Nehemiah account. Here the problem is not so much whether we have a primary source (though some will no doubt dispute this) but the extent to which it has been edited in the present account and, especially, the particular perspective, ideology, and prejudices of the narrator.
