PHILISTIA AR REVA MA'AH (QUARTER-OBOL)

Unpublished, See Gitler-Tal XX.11 HO for similar coin with a ram reverse, Very Fine+/Extremely Fine, 5.28mm, .12 gram.�Struck Circa. 5th - 4th Century B.C.E.� Obverse: Male head to right with oriental hairstyle.� Reverse: Goat's head and forepart to right, dotted border within incuse square.

EXTREMELY RARE and AMAZING in hand. There are about 40-50 dots and an animal head engraved in an incuse square of about 5mm! When looking at this it is almost impossible to imagine how it was done without special lenses. Surface irregularities are largely magnified because of the enlargement. A really beautiful piece of early Philistian coinage!
