Abstract: The Tal-Qadi stone has always been an archaeological enigma amongst scholars. It has always been thought that this broken fan-shaped artefact has representations of stars and the crescent moon. The objective of this paper is to question these interpretations and investigate further by analysing possible scenarios that may help decipher the code of the Tal-Qadi stone.
