Antiochus VIII was nicknamed Grypus (Hook-Nose). He fought a civil war with his brother that ended with Grypus' murder in 96 B.C. This coin was minted at the southern Judaean coastal city of Ascalon. Ascalon was under Seleukid rule from 200 B.C., after the battle of Panion, until 104/103 B.C., when the city regained autonomy. The mint is identified by the abreviation AΣ, a dove (the sacred bird of Derketo Atargatis, a chief deity of Ascalon) and an apluster (part of the stern-post of a warship, symbolizing the sea).
