AbstractsA Sixth-Century Coin from Kos found at Ketef Hinnom, Jerusalem. Erik Waaler. A silver coin from Kos was found in a burial cave at Ketef Hinnom in use between c. 650 and 450 BCE. Depicted are a crab on the obverse and an incuse square on the reverse, indicating that it might be a trihemiobol minted in the Lydo-Milesian standard. Trade between western Turkey and the Levant ended abruptly about 603 BCE when the coast of the Levant was destroyed by the Babylonians. Trade resumed in the Persian period, but mainly with the Greek mainland. As 603 BCE is too early for the coin, it probably entered the Levant in the Persian period.More Than Meets The Eye: Athenian Owls and the Chronology of Southern Palestinian Coinages of the Persian Period. Haim Gitler and Oren Tal. In our INR 7 paper we suggested that with regard to the treatment of eyes on Philistian coins, the predominant style was the three-quarter profile eye found on Athenian tetradrachms in c. 420â€"390 BCE. In this follow-up paper we have re-examined 53 Athenian issues found in licensed archeological excavations in Palestine. The percentages of coins per period in terms of similarity of eye treatment between these Athenian finds and the Philistian and Samarian coinages are significantly similar. Artistically, this indicates that local craftsmen were strongly influenced by Greek die engraving. Another implication may be chronological, suggesting a close dating between the circulating Athenian issues and local coins.A Hoard of Tyrian Silver from Horbat 'Aqrav, Upper Galilee. Danny Syon. A hoard discovered in 1970 in Upper Galilee contained silver coins of Antiochus VII and Demetrius II minted in Tyre, as well as autonomous sheqels of Tyre. The 20 coins described form less than half of the original hoard and span 28 years. It is suggested that this emergency hoard was buried around 110 BCE and is connected with the Hasmonean penetration into Galilee, before its annexation to the Hasmonean state.A Review of the Shechem Hoard. Eric A. Carlen. This study presents the first full account of the 1960 Shechem hoard, partially published by Sellers in 1962, and consisting of 35 Ptolemaic tetradrachms. It corrects some attributions and dates in Seller's original publication. These corrections date the concealment to 199/8 BCE, rather than 190 BCE as Sellers proposed, a change that is historically significant. Moreover, the hoard contains four coins of Ptolemy IV Philopator, only one of which is a variety listed by Svoronos. These coins provide information on Philopator's coinage and its economic role in the region at the time.The Weight Standards of the Hellenistic Levant, Part One: The Evidence of the Syrian Scale Weights. Gérald Finkielsztejn. This is the first of three planned articles presenting most of the known inscribed lead scale weights from the Hellenistic Levant. The standards and units on which they were based are deduced from their weighed masses, from the values that are inscribed on these weights or according to values on parallel weights from the same or very similar classes. In a fourth article, the origins of the standards, the relations between them and the evolution of some of them will be discussed, as well as suggestions for some historical conclusions.Herod the Great's Royal Monogram. David M. Jacobson, The significance of the cross or saltire, usually enclosed by a diadem, which features on a few of Herod's coins, has represented an ongoing enigma. Examined in the context of Herod's coin types, it is argued that this motif represents Herod's royal monogram. This interpretation can help to explain the crossed palm branches depicted on a coin of the Roman governor under Claudius dated to 54 CE.Tyrian Sheqels from the 'Isfiya Hoard, Part Five: Half Sheqels with Unclear Dates, Crude-Style Half Sheqels and Augustan Imperial Denars.
