Coin Found At New Shiloh Excavation

I had previously blogged that a new season of archaeological excavations was underway at Tel Shiloh.

Well, we have had an exciting discovery:

Yes, that is a coin:

Is it of the early Arab period?  The Ottoman period?  The Byzantine?  Roman?  Crusader?

Stay tuned for a report on the coin after it has been cleaned and observed in a laboratory.
