Abstract

The Siloam inscription and tunnel have been a focus of interest due to the coincidence of the monumental construction, an inscription describing the last phase of that construction and the apparent reference to the same tunnel in the Hebrew Bible. By all counts, the inscription offers a lively report of the events in which the main characters are the hewers themselves; however, although the text shows the features of narrative, it has not been subjected to an analysis using the tools and insights offered by narratology. The aim of the present study is to provide such an analysis.
