Customer Reviews

Own an ancient bronze coin hand struck from A.D. 70-106 in the Lost City of Petra! Former capital of the secretive Nabataean society, and located in present-day Jordan, Petra is accessible only by foot through a narrow, mile-long rock gorge. Lost and forgotten for centuries until rediscovery in 1812, this tourist mecca features elaborate buildings, temples and tombs literally carved out of sandstone cliffs.

This nicely detailed coin features the jugate busts of Rabbel II – the final leader of the Nabataean Kingdom – and his sister Gamilat, who served as queen regent partway through his rule. Crossed cornucopias are shown on the reverse. Add the intrigue of a legendary lost city and a little known ancient economic empire to your collection today!
