Dates?[edit]

The article says king Ahiram lived c. 1200 BC, but the caption near the photograph says c. 1000 BC?

  • - No other sources? That's weird doesn't the Bible mention a Hiram (shorten form of: Ahiram). "King of Tyre, and friendly contemporary of Kings David and Solomon in the 11th century B.C.E" - Insight on the scriptures volume one.

Questions about the sarcophagus[edit]

What is the sarcophagus made of? Marble, or what?

What were the circumstances of its discovery? Presumably it was hidden underground.
