Iron Age II Pottery Goblet, Time of King Omri
Iron Age II Pottery Goblet, Northern Kingdom of Israel, 8th Century BCE, time of King Omri, father of King Ahab who married Jezebel. On flared foot with splendid traces of pigment remaining on vessel. Intact and in excellent condition. Of all Omri's deeds after he became king of Israel, only one item is mentioned in the Bible, which concerns his founding of the city of Samaria. Omri left Tirzah, which had been the royal capital since the reign of Jeroboam the son of Nebat (I Kings, 14:17), and built himself a new capital on land which he bought from Shemer, "the owner of the hill Samaria" (16:24). Samaria remained the capital of the Kingdom of Israel for the rest of its existence.
