Judaea, The Hasmoneans, Alexander Jannaeus, 103 - 76 BC
AE Lepton, Jerusalem Mint, 17mm, 0.62 grams
Obverse: eight rayed star within diadem.
Hendin 1150 An interesting example which shows the often poor quality control within the mint during this period. The ovberse is struck weakly and off center, renering a virtually blank surface. The planchet was only partially finished leaving casting spues on both sides. A fascinating example showing minting methodology.
