At the Pocket Change blog, Oliver Hoover has an informative post on Phoenician coins of the Seleucid era which display an escalating propaganda feud between two major Phoenician cities, Tyre and Sidon. The coins were minted during the reign of Antiochus IV Epiphanes, the Seleucid king whose persecution of Jews led to the Maccabean revolt.
I have noted coverage of coins of the Seleucid era here, here (which discusses Antiochus), here, here, and links.
