Other Animals on Ancient Coins

Our animals theme also includes the many mythological creatures depicted by ancient people.

Josephus identifies Hezekiah as the High Priest of the Jews who offered friendship to Ptolemy I after his conquest of Palestine. Josephus mentions Hezekiah was sixty years old at the time of Ptolemy. It was common for obverse dies in this series to have been used after they were completely deteriorated (see J.-P. Fontanille, "Extreme Deterioration and Damage on Yehud Coin Dies," INR 3 [2008], pp. 45-50).
