    Scientists Discover Ancient 'Magical' Amulet With Odd Two-Way Inscription



    A strange "magical" amulet dating back about 1,500 years has archaeologists buzzing.

    One side of the stone amulet, which was unearthed in 2011 in the ancient city of Nea Paphos in southwestern Cyprus, bears a 59-letter inscription that reads the same way backward and forward:

    ιαεωβαφρενεμουνοθιλαρικριφιαευεαιφιρκιραλιθονυομενερφαβωεαι.

    That's Greek to you, of course. So here's the palindrome's English translation: "Yahweh is the bearer of the secret name, the lion of Re secure in his shrine."

    The other side of the amulet shows several images, including one depicting the mummified Egyptian god Osiris in a boat and another of Harpocrates, the Greek god of silence, as well as animals and symbols.
