Benefactor robinjojo Posted February 8 · Benefactor Benefactor Share Posted February 8 This is a coin from the 2022 Syrian group that I acquired as almost an afterthought. It certainly is crude and in all likelihood an Eastern imitation owl, with an off center obverse and a crudely rendered owl on the reverse. However, on examination, there seems to be a character, possibly an Aramaic zayin or Z on the owl's leg. Eastern imitation owl, 4th century BC. From the 2022 Syrian group 16.88 grams Could this be an Aramaic character, or just a die break or chip? It seems quite deliberately engraved into the die, to me. What do you think? Thanks 7 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
