O: Laureate head of Melquart (Herakles) facing right

R: TYPOY IEPAS KAI ASYLOY ("Tyre, the Holy and Inviolable"); Eagle standing left with palm; BL and club in left field; monogram in right field; Phoenician letter below.

BMC Phoenicia p.240 #114, Hendin #917, (13.79g, 29mm)

A nicely toned example of this "30 Pieces of Silver" type coin from the early period of high style. Very slight flan disturbance near the ear on obverse is noted for completeness but does not detract from this great Biblical reference coin. Good centering and clear features make this coin a great choice for your Greek or Christian Theme collection.
