Stringed musical instrument found with no string on it. This instrument resembles the guitar yet it has no wooden machine heads that are used to tie up the strings. The bottom of the base is semi- oval ending with a square shape. In addition to this, there is an extra part at the bottom of the base, probably used to tie up the strings. The neck is as long as that of the guitar.

In the past, music was used in prayers as was said by the prophet David in Psalm 150 about praising God using different musical instruments such as: The Psaltery, the Harp, the Stringed instruments and many others. The church is still using music until now but it is limited to some brassy instruments such as the timbrel.
