The Antiquities Authority announced Sunday the discovery of the original store credit - an ancient seal that was used to show payments for offerings.

A 1cm by 1cm ancient seal was found with the words "Pure for God" written in Arameic, the Antiquities Authority said.

It is the first time anything has been discovered dealing with The Second Temple administration and helps put a human spin on the day to day activities of the time.
