Description

The Citadel inscription from Amman

Details

Words of Milkom: build for yourself entrances roundabout [...
...] that all who surround you shall surely die [...
...] I shall surely destroy. All who enter [...
...] and amid its columns the just will reside [...
...] the innermost door [I shall surely] extinguish [...
...] you shall gaze in awe in the midst of the porch [...
...] and [unintelligible] [...
...] peace to you and pe[ace to your descendants.]
