(Worthy News) – An Israeli girl found a 2,000-year-old silver coin which some experts believe was minted at the second Holy Temple in Jerusalem’s Old City as part of the Jewish revolt against the Romans.
The Israel Antiquities Authority (IAA) announced on Tuesday that 11-year-old Liel Krutokop discovered the coin at an archeological activity, The Jerusalem Post (The Post) reported.
Weighing 14 grams, one side of the coin features a cup as well as the inscriptions “Israeli shekel” and “second year,” indicating that the coin was minted during the second year of the Great Revolt against the Romans.
On the other side, an inscription reads “Holy Jerusalem” in ancient Hebrew next to another word that experts say refers to the headquarters of the High Priest in the Temple. [ Source: i24 (Read More…) ]
