Aces, Mike. An “Iron Butterfly” reference! Brings back lots of memories! You’ve outdone yourself!

It’s probably just a poor translation from the Turkish word for “inscriptions” or “writings.” Don’t get your hopes up! Smyrna is very damp. I doubt any scrolls could survive buried there for years, much less centuries or millennia.

It is true that almost all the ancient Near Eastern writings that we have come from places like Egypt, Sinai, or the Judean desert, where extremely dry conditions prevail.
