Description
With the head of Melkarth, patron god of Tyre, on the obverse, and an eagle on the reverse, this coin reflects the proud heritage of an ancient city. The Tyrian shekel, much prized in antiquity, is the most likely candidate for the thirty pieces of silver paid to Judas. A tangible excitement clings to this magnificent coin, as if it has been witness to history in the making. - (FJ.1759)
