Hendin, Guide to Biblical Coins (6th ed)

THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST TODAY: A Half a Century of Studying Biblical Coins (David Hendin).
Many people are interested in ancient coins, but not too many stay with it for over half a century! After nearly 50 years of writing and revising, and on the eve of publication of my book Guide to Biblical Coins 6th Edition, I can assure readers that the process of creation and revision of a book like this is not a straightforward process. This is true even though texts on the topic have existed for nearly 200 years.


This essay summarizes the latest on ancient Jewish coins. I have noted essays on ancient numismatics and related matters by David Hendin here, here, here, and here. I mention only those whose links are still good.
