Israelite Period Bronze Currency Ingot From Israel 82.7 Grams For Sale

Israelite Period Bronze Currency Ingot From Israel 82.7 Grams

Nice example of currency from Biblical times.

This is an Israelite Period (Iron Age c. 8th century BC) bronze bracelet-shaped currency ingot,around 8.4 cm diameter and weighs82.7 grams.These are often mistakenly believed to be bracelets, an idea which is quickly dissuaded by inability to slip in even a small hand, combined with the heavy weight.

Reference: Ancient Scale Weights and Pre-Coinage Currency 4.

This is a variety with a bulging center and narrow ends, found in the same context as the more uniform width type. It has been suggested that this is a southern style.

A hoard of more than 300 similar ingots (referred to in the excavation reports as 'anklets' [also impossible given the very thick bronze, which could have never been put on a person] was found in an Iron Age II tomb (c. 8th century BCE) Near Kibbutz Lahav in the south of Israel (Biran & Gophna 1970: 156).

This ingot was purchased by me from a licensed dealer in Israel.

This lot is accompanied by a photo-authenticity receipt signed by David Hendin, author of Guide to Biblical Coins.
