"It is
not only a revolution for
ancient Near Eastern
studies, but for the be-
ginnings of the history of
the world . . . for the be-
ginnings of urban culture
for all the world."
With these words, Prof.
Paolo Matthiae of Uni-
versity of Rome summed
up at the University of
Michigan the importance
of discoveries that he and
his colleague Prof.
Giovanni Pettinato have
made in archaeological
excavations at Tell Mar-
dikh (ancient Ebla) in
Syria.
Most striking to Bibli-
cal scholars were the lin-
guistic similarities bet-
ween ancient Eblaic and
Biblical Hebrew, Matth-
iae and Pettinato noted.
The tablets mentioned
Biblical names such as
Michael, Israel, Abraham
and Jerusalem.
Nevertheless, these Eb-
laic texts were "at least
1,000 years earlier than
any written part of the
Bible," according to U-M
Prof. David N. Freedman.
In discussing the 1976
excavation season just
concluded, the Italian pro-
fessors made it clear that
more Biblical revelations
had been made. One tablet
listed the five cities men-
tioned in Genesis XIV, 2 —
among them, Sodom and
Gomorrah.
Another referred to a
great flood, the oldest
such written account
known. Previously, the

Gallery to Exhibit
Works of Israeli

Arwin Galleries, 222 W.
Grand River, downtown,
will have a reception
marking the opening of
an exhibit of works by Is-
raeli artist Shalom of
Safed 2 p.m. Nov. 21 in the
gallery.
The exhibit of Shalom
of Safed's works in temp-
era, acrylic, tapestry and
lithograph will open
Wednesday and continue
until Nov. 30. For infor-
mation, call the gallery,
965-6510.

oldest known reference to
the flood story had been a
Sumerian tablet from
1800 B.C., Pettinato
explained. And, Freed-
man pointed out, words
from the Book of Job,
"which has always been a
puzzle," have turned up
in the tablets.
