Baal

Ba'al simply means 'Lord' in Phoenician and was used to describe many local gods. At first the name Ba'al was used by the Jews for their God, but as the struggle between religions developed, the name Ba'al was given up in Judaism. Over time Ba'al became synonymous with Beelzebub.

Arados, Phoenicia, Unknown King "S", c. 348 - 339 B.C.

|Phoenicia|, |Arados,| |Phoenicia,| |Unknown| |King| |"S",| |c.| |348| |-| |339| |B.C.|, |stater|
Early coins of Arados have the Aramaic letters mem aleph (read from right to left) above the galley, abbreviating Melech Arad (meaning King of Arados), sometimes followed by the king's initial, and sometimes by the Phoenician regnal year date.

Laranda, Lycaonia, 4th Century B.C.

|Members| |Auction| |Listed|, |Laranda,| |Lycaonia,| |4th| |Century| |B.C.|, |obol|
Gktrk identifies this type as issued by Laranda, Lycaonia, which issued coins with the same types. Most references attribute the type to an uncertain city in Cilicia and some to Tarsos. Laranda was destroyed by Perdiccas in about 322 B.C. and later became a seat of Isaurian pirates. This type was minted with a progression of reverses, first with an incuse square, then a square border of dots, and finally with a circle of dots. The original archaic punch reverse gradually evolved into a regular die, nearly identical to an obverse die. This variant is from near the beginning of that evolution.
MA95412. Silver obol, Gktrk 57, SNG BnF 449 (uncertain Cilicia), SNG Levante 223 (uncertain Cilicia), F, obverse off center, scratches, squarish flan, weight 0.597 g, maximum diameter 11.2 mm, die axis 180o, Laranda (Karaman, Turkey) or uncertain Cilician mint, 4th century B.C.; obverse Baal seated left on backless throne, grain ear and bunch of grapes in right, long scepter vertical behind in left; reverse forepart of wolf right, crescent horns downward above, within square dotted boarder in incuse square punch; $27.99 (25.75) ON RESERVE
