Abstract

The territorial extent of Persian-period Yehud and Hellenistic Judea and estimates of their population are major issues in current research1, with far-reaching implications for dating the composition of several biblical works2. Recent research on the Yehud seal impressions3 and my own work on two geographical lists in the Book of Nehemiah4 raise new questions and call for a fresh treatment of both issues.
