The Tel Dan Inscription, or “House of David” inscription, was discovered in 1993 at the site of Tel Dan in northern Israel in an excavation directed by Israeli archaeologist Avraham Biran. It has provided the first historical evidence of King David from the Bible.
In the Tel Dan Inscription, parts of the names of two kings are preserved namely, Jehoram, son of Ahab, king of Israel and Ahaziah, son of Jehoram, king of Judah (the House of David). With this information it is possible to assign the inscription to Hazael, king of Aram-Damascus, who undoubtedly set it up in Dan to commemorate his victory over Joram and Ahaziah at Ramoth-Gilead in 841 BC.
2 Kings 8:28 “Ahaziah went with Jehoram son of Ahab to war against Hazael king of Aram at Ramoth Gilead. The Arameans wounded Jehoram”.
It is currently on display in the Israel Museum in Jerusalem.
