The Shiloah Inscription was discovered in the Hezekiah Tunnel during the 19th century. It is among the oldest extant records of its kind written in Hebrew, using the Paleo-Hebrew alphabet. The inscription itself, now displayed in a museum in Turkey, records the construction of the tunnel in the 8th century BCE. A copy of the inscription is displayed in the Hezekiah Tunnel, at the exact point in which it was found.
