Description

The mystery behind an 'ancient Jewish relic' found buried inside a graveyard which baffled archaeologists for months was solved by Facebook within hours. The gold object, which looks like a strange rolling pin, was uncovered six months ago in Jerusalem cemetery in Israel by a grounds keeper who thought it was a bomb. It was handed to the country's Archaeological Authority who spent the next few months trying to figure out what on earth it was. Ancient Roman and Jewish relics had been unearthed on the site, but the sceptre did not resemble them or anything else the archaeologists had seen. In desperation, the authority posted a picture of the relic on its Facebook page and within hours had its answer. Far from being a rare historical artifact, the item turned out to be a device New Age advocates believe to be an “energy healer”. Made in Germany, the object is called an Isis Beamer after the Egyptian goddess Isis, which according to Egyptian mythology was the goddess of healing, magic and nature. Other suggestions included a device used for cattle insemination, a rolling pin and an object used in the ancient Jewish Temple. Italian Micah Barak was the one who identified the object and was invited to Israel Antiquities Authority National Treasures Department to see it up close. “The wisdom of the masses has done its part,” the authority said on Tuesday. But one more mystery remains - why did someone bury an object worth nearly £250 with a corpse. The authority said: "We hope that those responsible for hiding the object in the cemetery will contact us, tell us why it was buried in the ancient structure and to whom amongst the dead and buried they wanted to give positive energy."
