A rare coin minted 1,949 years ago was found last week in a dig in the City of David in Jerusalem.
Reut Vilf of the City of David Foundation said the coin, discovered in the sewage system running beneath ancient Jerusalem, dates back to the year A.D. 69, the fourth year of the Jewish revolt against Rome and the year in which the rebels despaired.
According to Israeli media reports, a cache of bronze coins from that time was found in 2014 in a village near Jerusalem and more were unearthed in a cave by the Temple Mount in 2018, from the second and fourth years of the rebellion.
The coin found last week bears an inscription ancient Hebrew lettering reading "For the Redemption of Zion" and a depiction of a chalice.
