A “should have” affordable coin for any collection. COMES IN FOLDER WITH CERTIFICATE. This Azes II Silver drachm played a major role in the history of Early Christianity. “The wise men of the east” described in the bible were guided by a prophesy and the Star of Bethlehem to find the baby Jesus. Christian tradition has set their number as three, known as them Magi, and named them Caspar or Gaspar, Melchior, and Balthazar. They’re interpreted today to have been court astrologers from the east who studied and interpreted signs in the sky. The EPIPHANY commemorates their discuss with. Biblical scholars have debated their identities for centuries. Many scholars consider Caspar (or Gaspar) to have been a representative sent by “The Great King” Azes II of ancient Bactria to the Holy Land to pay homage to the newborn Jesus. His travels were almost certain to have been financed by the severy same bronze and silver drachms issued by Azes, who ruled the area which is now brand new Afghanistan from 35 BC to 5 AD-right through the time of the birth of Jesus. Azes II (35 BC – 5 AD), king of Bactria, minted drachm coins inspired by ancient Greek designs originating 500 years earlier. The obverse legends were written in Greek, the reverse is in Indian script, making his coinage a few of the earliest bilingual coins. The coins were hand made by striking hot, silver disks between iron dies. This crude method resulted in imperfect, but remarkably detailed coins. The king on horseback is inscribed on the one side, and a standing figure of Zeus is on the reverse. Comes in mini album & Certificate of Authenticity. All of Azes’ coins were in circulation when Christ lived. It may be assumed that some were struck on the day of Christ’s birth! GUARANTEED GENUINE.
