Abstract

This paper discusses a recently discovered coin hoard in the German-Israeli Tell Iẓṭabba Excavation Project whose copper-alloyed coins belong to the days of Alexander II Zabinas (129/8–124/3 BCE). The hoard is discussed in light of Tell Iẓṭabba’s history and archaeology — as a settlement founded in the Seleucid period and destroyed by John Hyrcanus in 108/7 BCE
