Abstract

This report catalogues and contextualizes the Hellenistic, Roman, Byzantine and Islamic coin finds from the 2023 excavation season of the German-Israeli Tell Iẓṭabba Excavation Project as excavated in Areas E, F and G. All Hellenistic coins catalogued below have been assigned to the Seleucid settlement at the site, while many of the post-Hellenistic coins came from Area E, where we have uncovered the Byzantine city wall. In total 44 coins are catalogued: 18 Seleucid coins [two are unidentifiable]; four Hellenistic civic coins; an isolated Hasmonean coin, an isolated Roman Provincial coin, 12 Late Roman coins, three Byzantine coins, three Islamic coins and additional two unidentified coins. These coins supplement the coins published from previous seasons (from Areas B, C and D) and further contributes to the knowledge of the numismatic data of Tell Iẓṭabba and to our understanding of the overall settlement history at the site.
