An unusual discovery was made at the world-famous Hagia Sophia in Istanbul last week.

According to Turkish media, while a Muslim was praying in the ancient cathedral, recently reconverted into a mosque, he noticed a small stone detached from the wall, reports newsit.gr.

He immediately informed the authorities, who discovered five parchments with Hebrew writing in a bag inside the wall.

The writings are being held by the police and will be examined by the Provincial Directorate of Culture and Tourism to determine if they are of historical value.

Hagia Sophia was turned into a mosque again last July by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Coop is correct, the image linked in NewsIt shows Futhark runes, not Hebrew ashurit.

Are you sure that's Hebrew? That looks Runic and the parchment looks fresh. The random pentagram and six pointed star lead me to think this is just a fake.
