    Classic Yehud Lily / Falcon Issue

    Yehud (before 333 BC). AR half gerah (7mm, 0.39 gm, 3h). Lily / ¿UY (yhd) above r. wing of falcon with wings spread, head r. Hendin 1060. Meshorer TJC 16. AJC 117,16b. Extremely Fine.

    Here we have the classic Yehud issue, displaying the lily (strongly resembling the later French fleur de lis) as a symbol for Jerusalem. The lily, or shoshan in Hebrew, was considered a standout among flowers. Rabbinic sources refer to a 'lily-rose,' which is a symbol for Israel, as well as a 'soft lily' and the 'lily of the valley.' The asssociation with the land of Israel appears to be quite ancient (see lot 2004).
