Archaeologist Gregory Yodon said, "The documents discovered this time are sacred and become important clues to elucidate the early faith that was done in the" lost culture "which was the root of Western customs I guess. "

The plate stone weighs about 500 pounds (about 230 kg) and is about 4 feet (about 1.2 m) in height × 2 feet in width (about 60 cm) in size. It seems that a document consisting of about 70 letters was written with punctuation marks.

The stone board has parts where characters are faint and difficult to read, and it is said that one side has discolored because of fire in the ancient times.
