Belonging to Gedaliah who is over the House

This find is an amazing confirmation of the scriptural account of Nebuchadnezzar's invasion we read about in 2Kings 25:22-24:

"Then he made Gedaliah the son of Ahikam, the son of Shaphan, governor over the people who remained in the land of Judah, whom Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon had left. Now when all the captains of the armies, they and their men, heard that the king of Babylon had made Gedaliah governor, they came to Gedaliah at Mizpah."

Another clay seal housed in the British Museum is inscribed with the words: "Hannaniah, son of Gedaliah."
