Judean Kingdom, Alexander Jannaeus (Yehonatan), 104 - 76 B.C.
|Alexander| |Jannaeus|, |Judean| |Kingdom,| |Alexander| |Jannaeus| |(Yehonatan),| |104| |-| |76| |B.C.|, Jannaeus' anchor coins were probably struck after his conquest of the coastal cities (with the exception of Ashkelon) in 95 B.C. The anchor probably publicized annexation of these areas. The inscription was apparently a short-lived attempt at propaganda to refute the Pharisees claims that the Hasmoneans were priests and therefore not from David's line and thus usurpers of the crown.
