Description
The article examines one specific type of coin that was minted by Alexander Jannaeus and probably by his successors, during the first century BCE. New variants and unpublished specimens are discussed along with a proposal that this coin type may be divided into four subtypes. The article also considers the preparation of the dies used to mint the smallest of this type of coin. Finally, the article proposes the denomination that these coins had in the ancient Judean marketplace.
