This inscription was found on a wall in the ruins of the Indian city of Fatehpur Sikri, located some 15 miles west of Agra, dating to around 1601. It has been considered by some to be a piece of oral tradition dating from when Jesus had been there, one or more decades after the crucifixion. Akbar was evidently impressed by it.
