Tyre coin..
I am rather new at coin collecting...I have recently found some rather interesting coins..One seems to be a civic issue Tyre,coin..with a bearded man on the left side of the front,and at the bottom right stands a trident with a snake,or something wrapped around it..On the back is a palm I think.and on either side stands the words "atta neun"..Does anyone know what this coin is?? I also have a strange bronze Byzantine coin..with a rather flatened almost faded image of Christ enthroned,one the other side there are many block like patterns..They seem to be letters that have been worn away....Another coin I have is a very thick bronze Roman coin With a rather important looking man on it..I cannot read what is inscripted,but I can send a photo to anyone interested....I have never seen a coin so thick,does that have any particular signifigance?? So please increase my knowledge if you can...Thank you .. Fionn...

Sounds interesting...
I'd like to see a picture, but the forum software said you do not accept emails. Could you please email me at urijahATgmailDOTcom (Change the AT and DOT to what you expect.) Thanks.

or you could just post the coin - that's what you have an account for! just add the coin and reply to this thread with a link or coin number.

this way we can all take a look, though i admit i personally would be at a loss with a coin from tyre.
