The Trumpeting Place inscription is an inscribed stone from the 1st century CE discovered in 1968 by Benjamin Mazar in his early excavations of the southern wall of the Temple Mount. The stone, showing just two complete words written in the Square Hebrew alphabet, was carved above a wide depression cut into the inner face of the stone. The first word is translated as “to the place” and the second word “of trumpeting” or “of blasting” or “of blowing”, giving the phrase “To the Trumpeting Place”. The subsequent words of the inscription are cut off. The third word (…לה), which is incomplete, has been interpreted as either “declare” or “distinguish”, giving either: “to declare [the Sabbath]” or “to distinguish [between the sacred and the profane]”, where the words in square brackets represent scholarly conjecture.
It is believed to be a directional sign for the priests who blew a trumpet announcing the beginning and end of the Shabbat in the Second Temple period. It is thought to have fallen from the southwest corner of the Temple Mount to the street below prior to its discovery. It has been connected to a passage in Josephus‘s The Jewish War (IV, ix, 12) in which he describes a part of the Temple: “the point where it was custom for one of the priests to stand and to give notice, by sound of trumpet, in the afternoon of the approach, and on the following evening of the close, of every seventh day”.
