    Description

    Judaea. Bar Kochba Revolt. 132-135 C.E. AR zuz (18 mm, 3.27 g, 7 h). Hybrid issue of years 1 and 2 (132-133 C.E.). Paleo-Hebrew inscription "Shimo" within wreath / Jug with one handle; palm branch to right; paleo-Hebrew inscription "Eleanor the priest" around. Mildenberg 3 (O3/R1); TJC 234a (same dies); Hendin 685. XF.

    A rare hybrid issue combining an obverse die of year 2 and a reverse die of year 1. It has been suggested that the abbreviated name on the obverse was intended to refer to both Shimon Bar Kochba's name and to the Shema prayer, which may have been used as a rallying cry by the Jewish rebels.
