ALEXANDER JANNAEUS AE PRUTAH, 103 - 76 B.C.E

Hendin 1150a, Very Fine, contrast added, 16.7mm, 5.02 grams !!

Obverse: YEHONATAN THE KING in Paleo-Hebrew between the rays of an eight ray star, within diadem

Reverse: BAΣIΛEΩΣ AΛEΞANΔPOY (of King Alexander) around inverted anchor

A VERY INTERESTING example, well centered and struck on a super THICK planchet with almost TRIPLE the average weight for this coin type. Surely one of the heaviest specimens known!
