My coin of interest today is the third in a micro-collection with personifications of Boule, Demos, and Gerousia.  This coin from Phrygia, Hierapolis .



What was the Gerousia of Hierapolis?  Which apostle's tomb were found in Hierapolis in 2011 by Francesco D'Andria, Itialian Archeologist?

Post your coins with personifications of Boule, Demos, Senate and Gerousia.
