Title: Ptolemaic Tyre coins in temple tax
Post by: Mauro Coca C on July 22, 2019, 07:51:57 am
Hello guys!


Ptolemaic shekels minted at Tire, may have been used as a temple tax?
 
Thanks.

It is not impossible. Ptolemaic silver tetradrachmae have been found in hoards from the late Second Temple period, demonstrating that they were current at this time.
