The Galilee Hoard, 131 Bronze Coins, Deposited c. 84 B.C., Found 1989

In 1989, Alex Malloy received a hoard of 131 bronze coins. The find location was reported to be north of the Sea of Galilee. The hoard is of special interest as it represents the fascinating historical struggle in that region in the end of the 2nd century B.C. and the beginning of the 1st century B.C. All the historical players of the period are represented in the hoard. The Syrian kings, Antiochus VIII, his sons, Demetrius III and Antiochus XII, the Hasmonean Alexander Jannaeus and the Nabataean Aretas III are included. The nine mints represented are Damascus, Antioch on the Orontes, Akko-Ptolemais, Tyre, Jerusalem, Seleucis on the Orontes, the Nabataean mint of Petra, Sidon, and Biblos. Click here to read Alex Malloy's study "The Galilee Hoard" and Allen Berman's "Historical Background to the Galilee Hoard."
