Abstract During the excavation at the Tulul adh-Dhahab in the Wadi az-Zarqa (Jordan) in 2006 and 2009, some carved stones were found. At least one of them indicates a cultic context (9th to 8th century B.C.). As Ez 8:7-13 criticizes the worship of engraved animal motives in the temple of Jerusalem, which might be a reminiscence of the carved wood art of the pre-exilic temple (1Reg 6:29-36), the archaeological finds support the existence of carved wood or stones in Ancient Syria in Iron Age II. In addition to that, the carved stones found also partially covered the walls in one or more rooms. Moreover they lead to the conclusion that there must have been a sanctuary on top of the Western one of the Tulul adh-Dhahab in neo-Assyrian times.
