Affifi said the mission did not carve the Star of David on the block, as was claimed by some newspaper reports. The mission inserted the block within its rebuilding work of the temple.
"The block is now removed to the site's archaeological gallery, in order to study its date of carving, and to inspect its authenticity," Afifi said.
The block is of plain limestone engraved with two drawings of the Star of David, each 10 centimetres wide.
