After a bit more digging here and there I finally was able to come across a picture with some of the writing on it clear enough to “read” at the Examiner (shown above).
If it was in Hebrew in “code” (as the media claims), this alphabet is completely out of place from where the codices are “supposed” to come from, not to mention that some of the letter forms are simply wrong (what appears to be gimel and lamed to me is flipped compared to other letters such as mim and nun).
UPDATE: Here’s an illustration of what I mean:
On a scale of 1 to 5 where 1 is fake, and 5 is genuine, on consideration of the script alone, I’d give it a 1.
However upon examination I’ve determined that the Nabatean portion of the inscription does not match any of the text on any of the good quality pictures on the plates revealed thusfar (although I’m still running comparisons).
As such I am issuing a “Nabatean Script Watch” if any new photographs emerge so that Bibliobloggers keep an eye for any similarities to the above inscription. 🙂
