BAR KOCHBA AE "LYRE"

Mildenberg 31, Hendin 1436, Very Fine, 19.2mm, 6.68 grams, Struck Circa. 134/135 C.E.
 
Obverse: Palm branch within a wreath, inscription around

Reverse: Elongated lyre, Shimon around

A scarcer than often realized Bar Kokhba bronze, with a heft weight despite being struck on a tight flan. Palm branch is a bit soft struck on one side. However the Lyre has an excellent BOLD strike on the other.
