The collaboration between Dr Dan Levene and Prof. Beno Rothenberg on a project that aims to identify references to metals and metalworking techniques in what are primarily Judaic sources has been a bringing together of two different approaches to studying the past: philology and archaeometallurgy. This paper highlights the way in which the lexicography of certain terms must inevitably rely on knowledge of the relevant technology and its history. To illustrate this point two terms are examined: 1. the word srp (\#1507;\#1491;\#1510;) and the shifting meanings of some of its cognates across time; and 2. the word 'nk (&1498;\#1504;\#1488;), that appears in Amos 7.7-8
