The royal significance of the rosette motif indicates that the vessels on which they appear were manufactured under royal sponsorship and intended for official use. The stratigraphic analysis of the well-stratified impressions from the City of David and elsewhere leads to the conclusion that the rosette-impressed vessels date to the very last phase of the Iron Age II. They appear to have been introduced during the reign of Jehoiakim, possibly in response to the threat of Babylonian invasion that followed Egypt’s defeat at the Battle of Carchemish in 605 BCE (Cahill 1995: 247-50)” (Qedem 41 Cahill 2000: 99). “Well-stratified rosette impressions from other sites also derive exclusively from the destruction levels marking the end of the Iron Age II (Cahill 1995: 244-46). In addition to those from the City of David, 26 rosette-impressed handles have been found in well-stratified contexts at the following seven sites (Cahill 1995: 245-46): six from Tel Batash; two from Tel el-Ful; three from En Gedi; four from Tel Ira; four from Lachish; one from Tel Malhata; and six from Ramat Rahel. Analysis of the stratigraphic settings of these rosette impressions suggests that they were introduced during the reign of Jehoiakim and that, although closely contemporary, the various classes of rosette motif were chronologically distinct (Cahill 1995:247-50). Although close to 250 rosette-impressed handles are known, none of the seals used to stamp them has yet been recovered” (Qedem 41 Cahill 2000: 99).
