An Hebrew inscription was found on a large stone that had fallen on the Herodian street near the southwest corner of the Temple Mount. The inscription, which may be translated as “to the place of trumpeting to [announce] …”, indicated the place where the priest stood to blow the trumpet to announce the commencement of the Sabbath and feast-days. © Leen Ritmeyer
