Cappadocian Tablets

Cuneiform tablets, dating from 2300 B.C., recently discovered at Kara-Euyuk near Caesarea, recording a settled Semitic community, and early connection of Hebrews with Semites of Palestine. They corroborate Babylonian records of a Semitic conquest from Palestine, 2225 B.C., and show inhabitants of Palestine at Abraham's migration, 2100 B.C., to be an older branch of same Semitic stock.
