A Pair of Bronze Coins of the Governor Pontius Pilatus at the Time of Jesus, Mounted in 18k Gold Earrings

DESCRIPTION:

These attractive earrings were made of bronze coins from the time of Pontius Pilate, the biblical governor of Judaea from the time of Jesus. The coins have been mounted in 18k gold custom designed to encase the precious artifacts within. Under Rome, Judaea printed the regional designs of the currency seen here. The bold imprints left by an ancient mint are clearly seen, as well as the ancient characters of the local Paleo-Hebraic alphabet. These coins remain in excellent condition and date from approximately 26 AD – 36 AD.
