Judaean prutah help


Jay GT4:
Hi guys.  I've had this one kicking around on my desk for over a year.   I have the new Hendin but I'm just not sure.  Anyone able to help with the script?  Thanks!

1.21g; 12mm

Looks like an Alexander Jannaeus coin. You can see the [yhw]ntn on the right of the first (visible) row.

Jay GT4:
Thanks! That's what I was leaning towards.  Now for a Hendin reference... is this classic style or cursive style? 6180-2

Jay GT4:
I'm going with Hendin 6181 I think

Unfortunately I am away from home and don't have GIC handy.  However, I would not classify this as having a "cursive-style" script.
