Summary[edit]

Description
English: An illustration from the Encyclopaedia Biblica, a 1903 publication which is now in the public domain.

Fig. C for article "Shekel".

Image of a half-shekel from Tyre in the year 102 BC. The human-like head is that of Melkarth, the Tyrian deity (often called, slightly misleadingly, the 'Tyrian Hercules'). On the other side of the coin is an eagle with one foot on the prow of a galley. Next to it is a club, which is a symbol of Melkarth.

It says "Year 24, [coin] of Tyre, the sacred and inviolable [city]"
