Menorah Appliqué From a Ring or Other Use
From 114 to 117 A.D. the Jews of Cyprus revolted and massacred gentiles in great numbers. After the uprising was put down, every known Jew in Cyprus was killed and a law was passed forbidding any Jew, even from a shipwreck, to set foot on the island. Nevertheless Jewish residents remained on the island and in 610 A.D. they were sufficiently numerous to participate in an insurrection against Heraclius. In 646, and again in 1154, Cyprus was devastated by Arabs.SH17036. Reportedly found on Cyprus, weight 0.537 g, maximum diameter 14.0 mm, uncertain date; obverse oval appliqué from a ring or other use, with a seven branched menorah surrounded by a Greek inscription; reverse blank; SOLD
