HEZEKIAH HAPECHA AR YEHUD, 1/2 MA'AH

 

Hendin 1069, Superb Extremely Fine, hoard patina, 6.8mm, .26 grams. Struck Circa. 333 - 302 B.C.E. 

 

Obverse: Facing head in a circle (mostly off)

Reverse: Inscription [HEZEKIAH] THE GOVERNOR to the sides of owl standing right, head facing. The feathers of the head form a beaded circle.

 

Obverse is mostly off as typical for this coin and the reverse legend is partial. Still this is the BEST STRUCK and SHARPEST example we have ever seen for this type. Quite amazing in hand actually. It is likely that the off-striking allowed more of the metal on the reverse to enter the die getting this exquisite level of detail on this small coin!

 

The word Hapecha appearing at left is the word that the Bible uses when refering to a governor appointed during the Persian period.
