    Description

    Philistia (5-4 centuries BC). AR quarter-shekel (14mm, 3.43 gm, 4h). Bearded male head r. with oriental hairstyle, bunched in back / [6ä-Y] (Y, N or V, A, H), their meanings unknown, in corners around Paradise flower or Phoenician palmette. Gitler-Tal XVII 5D. Extremely rare. Light crystallization. Very Fine.

    This is the second recorded specimen from these dies, and dramatically better preserved than the one illustrated by Gitler-Tal. Upon examination of a coin from similar dies with a clear letter Y (Y) in the upper right, Hendin suggested in 1996 that this might belong to the Yehud series (Hendin 3, 435), but discovery of similar coins with full inscriptions later proved this theory incorrect.
