Certificate of Authenticity:
Hellenistic Era 336-63 BCE.
Alexander the Great ruled from 336-323. He brought together Classical civilization and the cultures of the Ancient Near East. For example, Alexandria, named after him, was the seat of the god Zeus-Serapis, combining the Greek father of the gods with the Egyptian Serapis. The Hellenistic culture was favored by the priestly classes in the young Hasmonean kingdom and this was the cause of a series of conflicts approaching the dimensions of civil war within the Jewish people.
We hereby certify that this ancient silver drachm was struck between the fourth century BC and the third century BC, and to the best of our knowledge and expertise is genuine antiquity. We know from archaeological excavations that coins of this type were found in many sites in the Holy Land, attesting to their use here, in the country.
All of our items are meticulously made in our studio in HaYogev. Manufacturing time takes 10-20 days.
