Abstract: The two objects in question have been unearthed during a salvage excavation carried out by the Department of Palestinian Antiquities and Cultural Heritage at an Early–Middle Bronze cemetery at Kherbit el-Jami' (el-Ubayat), 4 km south of Bethlehem (coordinates 167000-121040, 675 m above Sea level). On 16–17 April, 2014 while digging at the site, two scarabs (BL 4368, BL 4369) were found in two chambers of two different Middle Bronze II tombs.1 The archaeological finds associated with the two scarabs are principally ceramic vessels (lamps, bowls and jars) and are dated to Middle Bronze II – Middle Bronze III.
