Remember the Authentic Ancient Metal Plates

Although the post is written from a LDS (Mormon) perspective, it is interesting nonetheless (and might well cheer up those severely disillusioned by the recent ‘fake’ Jordanian lead codices):

Since the recent events surrounding the seeming forgery of the Jordan Lead Codices, I thought it would be good to bring back to mind the authentic discoveries made within the last century of ancient writings on metal plates. There are literally hundreds of examples of such plates all around the world…

Today it is becoming commonplace to find such ancient texts, which is why in the dozens of media reports on the emergence of the lead plates this past week, not one questioned the fact that the writings were on metal.  In fact, one scholar specifically noted that there were examples of ancient metal tablets made out of copper, bronze, and gold.

Here is a summary of only some of the most prominent findings…  

They include:

  • The Etruscan Gold Book
  • The Pyrgi Gold Tablets
  • The Copper Scroll:

  • Diamond-Cutter Sutra Gold Plates
  • The Silver Scrolls
  • Darius I Persepolis Gold Plates
  • The Orphic Gold Plates
  • The Achaemenid Golden Codex

Check the above out here.

And to think that there may be many more authentic finds out there!
