Tyre Phoenicia Pseudo-Autonomous Issue : Melqarth / Club


Phoenicia, Tyre ; Pseudo-autonomous issue

Ox: Laureate head of Melqarth-Hercules right, lion skin tied around neck

Rx: Club surmounted by Tyre monogram; date code to left, Phoenician ethnic to right

An interesting type with decent details on both sides. The three letter date code is odd on this piece as I've only found the later two letter date codes for this issue. If you go to the older Phoenician dating system associated with the Tyre AR Shekels you get a date of 100+30+7=137 which corresponds to 12AD which puts it at the time of Augustus/Tiberius. Size is 21mm, 9.3gms
