Archaeologists discovered some sculptures upon the walls of Thebes in ancient Egypt at the magnificent temple of Karnak.
Among them was this figure above of an enemy captive with his arms tied behind his back, with a shield covering him. Upon the shield was written in Egyptian hieroglyphics: "Judah-Melek-Land" which means "the kingdom of Judah."
