dc.descriptionA bronze coin minted during the reign of the Hasmonean Jewish king John Hyrcanus (135-104 BC). One side of the coin depicts a wreath of laurel with the Hebrew inscription “Jehochanan the High Priest and the community of the Jews.” A double cornucopia flanking a poppy head is rendered on the other side. Note that unlike Gentile monarchs, the later Jewish kings followed a religious injunction against human portraiture, even on coins, but they did use classical symbols of honor and prosperity.en_US
