Old Hebrew note unveiled

BAR is reporting that a "a five-line, 6-by-6-inch ostracon, an inscription on a broken piece of pottery used as a kind of ancient notepaper" has been found on the 10th century remains of a fort at Ellah, near what was the Philistine border. The writing is faded, and has not been deciphered, though there seems to be reasonable grounds for identifying it as Hebrew.

If so, the Gezer Calendar, previously the oldest known example of Hebrew writing may have a challenger.
