HEROD THE GREAT, EAGLE LEPTON, 40 - 4 B.C.E.

This coin is said to represent the image of an eagle Herod hung at the Temple in Jerusalem. It is the first known,  what some consider a Graven Image on a Jewish coin.

This specimen is well struck for this usually obliterated coin with the FULL name of Herod. It is on a large flan with excellent weight for type.
