The appearance of such an invocation is virtually unprecedented on an overtly Jewish object. There is a Greek inscription on a Samaritan oil lamp of the same period, in similar script, that reads, "EIC \KQ\kEOC," or "one god" (see Sussman, "EIC \KQ\kEOC, 'One God'" in Bulletin of the Anglo-Israel Archaeological Society, vol. 12). Other related inscriptions are known on contemporary amulets and talismans. See, for example, no. 176ff. in Jewish, Early Christian and Byzantine Antiquities, L. Alexander Wolf and Frank Sternberg, Auction XXIII, 20 November 1989, for bronze pendants with Solomon spearing Lilith and other motifs with related Greek inscriptions.
