Kazuma78 Posted June 2, 2022 · Member Share Posted June 2, 2022 (edited) A friend of mine bought this coin back in 2019 and he showed it to me early in 2021 and I have loved the coin since then. After talking with him about it several times, he decided he could part with it, so it is now on its way to my collection. I am THRILLED to add it, as a shekel of Tyre has been on my list of types I want for a long time. Please feel free to post anything related! PHOENICIA. Tyre. 126/5 BC-AD 65/6.
