This coin is a well known copper piece of Simon Nasi (Nasi means chief or prince). These were made in both silver and copper with inscriptions in Hebrew, and were struck by Elizar. They were dated the 2, 3, and 4th years of the First Jewish– Roman War (66–73 AD), sometimes called The Great Revolt. On the obverse, the amphora, as a Temple motif, served as an inspirational symbol during the Bar Kochba (the third) Revolt (132– 135 AD). The legend reads “Deliverance of Israel.” The reverse has a grape leaf, which represents one of seven kinds of fruit frequently mentioned in the Bible.
