Reverse of Kingdom of Persis coin showing record of eclipse of 29 AD


The coin is most likely a record of the 29 AD eclipse that may have been seen in Judea at the time of the beheading of John the Baptist and the start of the gospel ministry of Jesus Christ. Note that it is partial as that is consistent with the path of the eclipse over southern Iran. Photo Zuzim Coins
