"This is really a very impressive piece," Finkelstein said of this golden earring adorned with ibex, or wild goats.

When excavating in the Megiddo region, "usually you get the sort of common earrings we also see in this same hoard"—simple crescent designs. "But this one is better, it's bigger, it's more elaborate—and as far as I know it's a unique piece in the history of the Levant region."
