I was in town for a political convention and exploring the downtown and snuck in the library. Cleveland Public Library is most proud of their antique chess set collection, but they also have artifacts they acquired a century ago from digs in the Middle East.
Head up to the third floor to the Special Collections room and past the chess sets you’ll see along the window what appears to be curios. One of the artifacts looks like an upside down tent peg.
I don’t claim to be an expert in hieroglyphics, so I read the descriptive plaque.
I was shocked by what I read so I emailed the library for more information and they sent me the original correspondence.
Even in a secular library you find references to the Bible – justifying the significance of their artifact – as the second city built by Nimrod!
And the beginning of his kingdom was Babel, and Erech, and Accad, and Calneh, in the land of Shinar. Genesis 10:10
