    Walls Of Jerusalem?

    CILICIA. Tarsus. Satrap Balacros (333-323 BC). AR stater (23mm, 11.02 gm, 7h). Baaltars seated left holding lotus tipped scepter, ear of grain to left, BLTRZ in Aramaic right / Lion left attacking bull right, club and B above, two rows of turreted and crenelated city walls below. Well centered, and struck good metal. Sunrise 146. SNG Von Aulock 5965. Areas of striking weakness, otherwise Extremely Fine.

    This intriguing type carries forward the design of an earlier issue of the satrap Mazaeus (361-334 BC). Author David Hendin has suggested that the impressive circuit of walls shown on the reverse may be those of Jerusalem, which fell within the jurisdiction of the Satrap of Cilicia and is known to have one of the most impressive walls in the region.
