    Description

    Reengraved date

    PHOENICIA. Tyre. Ca. 126/5 BC-AD 65/6. AR half-shekel. NGC Fine. Dated CY 161/162 (AD 35/6-36/7). Laureate head of Melqart right / TYPOY IEPAΣ-KAI AΣYΛOY, eagle standing left on prow, palm under wing; PΞB (date) above club to left; KP above XX monogram to right; aleph between legs. Prieur 1464-5. DCA Tyre 884.

    As per Cohen, 'the year appears to be engraved as an overdate. Year 162, PΞB, over year 161, PΞA, where the letter B is engraved over the A.' This example matches perfectly with the example plated in Cohen.
