A large basalt stele with thirteen lines of Aramaic script was discovered in 1993 at the foot of Mount Hermon. The inscription was created by King Hazael of Aram-Damascus in about 825 BCE, soon after the time of King Ahab of Israel and David's lineal descendant, King Jehosaphat of Judah. It states that his father, Hadad II, was victorious in battle against Jehosaphat (c. 860 BCE) and defeated the "foot soldiers, charioteers and horsemen of the King of the House of David."
