V12 2009 INDEX       E-SYLUM ARCHIVE

The E-Sylum: Volume 12, Number 44, November 1, 2009, Article 24

FEATURED WEB SITE: HANDBOOK OF BIBLICAL NUMISMATICS

This week's Featured Web site is Mel Wacks' Handbook of Biblical Numismatics.

In the Handbook of Biblical Numismatics you will see evidence of Alexander the Great's triumph in the Holy Land. You will even view portraits of two infamous femme fatales -- Cleopatra and Salome.

You will learn that the first strictly Jewish coins were not struck until 40 years after the Syrian King Antiocus VII had granted Simon Maccabeus permission.

You will understand why -- with only isolated exceptions -- no Jewish coins were minted showing a portrait. And you will discover ancient Hebrew inscriptions expressing the struggle for religious freedom and political independence.
