Silver shekel


On view at The Met Fifth Avenue in Gallery 169

Head of Tanit (Punic Persephone)/horse before date-palm. The horse was the usual symbol for Carthaginian coinage; the date-palm was used to indicate this to the Greeks in Sicily since in Greek meant both date-palm and Phoenician/Carthaginian.
