"The significance of the stone is testimony to the deep roots and strength of the Commandments which still constitute the basis of the three great world religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam," said David Michaels, Director of ancient coins for heritage auctions.

Michael said that the house, which was the plate was either destroyed by the Romans between 400 and 600 BC, either by the crusaders in the 11th century, and the stone was buried under the rubble of the ruins for many centuries until its discovery near Yavne.
