Judaea. Alexander Jannaeus (?), 103 to 76 BC

This coin came to me attributed to Alexander Jannaeus. I cannot read the inscriptions to confirm the attribution, so it might also be one of the other Jewish Kings who issued this type (and all of whom are rarer).

Denomination : AE Prutah

Reference : Sear Greek-6089 or variety.

Size : 12.3 x 13.0 mm. Weight : 1.27 grams.

This is a small coin, but average for the issue.

Grade : VF but off-center on the obverse.

Obverse :  Hebrew inscription in a wreath.

Reverse : Crossed double cornucopiae with a pomegranate between them.

This type qualifies as a "Widows mite"
