Hadrian Alexandria Egypt


This coin was minted in Alexandia, Egypt under the emperor Hadrian. It may have been produced in opposition to the Bar Kochba revolt with Hadrian portrayed as the "son of the star." Perhaps it was in relation to the upcoming new solar cycle of the Egyptian religion. Rome integrated foreign gods into their religion. A source said Tiberius wanted to recognize Jesus Christ as a diety before the senate after the crucifixion but that Jesus would not tolerate other gods before Him. Photo from Shick Coins
