Song of Songs
I should mention that the Tower of David is mentioned in a book written in the 10th century b.c. called 'Song of Songs' or 'Song of Solomon'. It appears that it may be impossible for it to be first built in the first or second century a.d. if it were mentioned in a book written 1000 years earlier.

- I realize my reply is somewhat late, but nonetheless:
- What makes you think that this is the same tower the "Song of Songs" is talking about? And what makes you think the Song of Songs was written in the 10th century B.C.? --18.104.22.168 (talk) 22:44, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
- The article says that the Byzantines named the after the tower in the Song of Songs, which is much more plausible. Zerotalk 00:45, 14 March 2017 (UTC)
This article has two contradictory explanations, differing by around 1000 years, for how the name "Tower of David" came about. Zerotalk 13:20, 14 May 2012 (UTC)
I reverted this edit because 1) The daytime picture is stunning, and 2) The nighttime picture is of low pixel quality. Yoninah (talk) 19:17, 4 February 2014 (UTC)
"dubious – discuss"
"As evidenced by the archaeological discovery of the Broad Wall, King Hezekiah was the first to specifically fortify this area."
If this is "evidenced", surely we may expect some kind of evidence that will support this statement. Please add reliable sources, or delete this claim. --22.214.171.124 (talk) 22:57, 13 March 2017 (UTC)
There are two proper sources listed at the end of the paragraph both which explain that the Broad walls founding and structure illustrate that fortifications began in the area known as the "Western Hill" in the King Hezekiah time period. It further explains that the remains of the wall today and the Citadel fortifications are more removed due to the walls destruction, changes in the cities structure, and further building. From the archaeological findings of what fortifications of the wall still exist, the Broad wall when originally built would have been within the vicinity of the Citadel fortifications as they stand today. 126.96.36.199 (talk) 21:49, 22 August 2017 (UTC) — Preceding unsigned comment added by 188.8.131.52 (talk)
