JOHN (YOCHANAN) HYRCANUS AE PRUTAH

 

Hendin 1132, Very Fine, 15mm, 2.1.77 grams

 

Obverse: Inscription within wreath, "Yehohanan the High Priest and the Council of the Judaeans" in Paleo-Hebrew

Reverse: Double cornucopia adorned with ribbons, pomegranate between horns

 

Choice obverse and quite uncommon thus centered with complete legends! Also, the scarcer "A" type, which probably refers to Hyrcanus' patron Antiochos VII.
