That little thing in her hand is a priceless treasure!

A 12-year-old Israeli girl has shot into the limelight after she discovered a 3,200 years old amulet bearing the name of the Egyptian ruler Thutmose III.

Neshama Spielman made the amazing discovery when she came with her family to participate in the Temple Mount Sifting Project, an initiative to sort through earth discarded from the Temple Mount in Jersusalem.

“While I was sifting, I came across a piece of pottery that was different from others I had seen, and I immediately thought that maybe I had found something special, it’s amazing to find something thousands of years old from ancient Egypt all the way here in Jerusalem. Celebrating Passover this year is going to be extra meaningful to me,” Speilman said.

The Passover festival commemorates the exodus of ancient Israelites from Egypt.

Thutmose III reigned from 1479 – 1425 BCE in Egypt. Considered to be one of the most important pharaohs, Thutmose III is credited with establishing Egyptian rule in Canaan.
