There is an Antoninus Pius example from Arabia Petra with matching ΑΥΚΤΑΙΠΑΔΑΥΙωΛ obverse legend and ΑΔ ΜΗΤΡΑ reverse legend

See the third example (legend variation) in the list

From right to left: Chet Bet Resh = Chaber = Council. Regularly found in legends of Hasmonean coins.

Best regards

Usually it is vocalized as ḥever (or SBL ḥeḇer, etc.). In Hebrew, it has the vowels חֶבֶר.

Hello Friends,

Sorry I haven't been posting much lately.  It has been a really busy school year!  Anyway, I could use your help.  Attached is an excerpt from the London Papyrus that is translated: "How did you cross the stream of silver-eddying Acheloios, through River Ocean's wet paths?"

My question is, what are those dots below certain letters?  Is that a weird way of writing a subscript iota on early Greek manuscripts?  Needless to say, MS word doesn't appear to have this option in its Greek font pallet!

Thanks for the help,

Nick

If you know Hebrew (or can answer the question below), please help.

 Judean_rosh_3 Judean_beyt_3 Judean_het_1

HBR (council) abbreviates what Hebrew word (with the vowels)?

Happy Hanukkah!

Thanks,
Joe

Sweet looking OP-coin ... but sadly, I don't have a guess (but it's very cool)

So here is a coin with a complete obverse legend, but I can't make any sense of it.  Please enlighten me.  Bust looks like Hadrian maybe?  But other than one  Greek_Delta over the head there seems to be no spelling or abbreviation for him or anyone else??

The reverse is a simple Tyche bust and the only readable reverse legend is from 3 to 6 o'clock "MHTPA"  I think that is start or abbreviation (A instead of O?) for Metropolis.  But what Metropolis I don't know?  Petra has been suggested.

Thank you in advance for your time.  To have so much information and come up empty -- I could learn a lot from this.
