Yohohanan the King




Denomination:  Bronze Prutha        

Date:  135-104 BCE

Description: On the obverse: ‘Yehohanan the High Priest and the Council of the Jews’ within a wreath. On the reverse: a pomegranate between two cornuacopias.

John Hyrcanus I, the youngest son of Simon Maccabeus, was high priest and ruler of the Jewish nation from 135/134 to 104 BC. Under his reign the Hasmonean kingdom of Judaea in ancient Israel attained power and great prosperity, and the Pharisees, a scholarly sect with popular backing, and the Sadducees, an aristocratic sect that comprised the priesthood, became well-defined religious parties.
