SEE IT: Ancient Coin with 'Face of Jesus' Discovered

Caleb Parke : Dec 8, 2023  CalebParke.com

Archeologists believe the Jesus coin was minted between 977 and 1025, based on the design element commonly used during that time period: the three dotted lines on the coin's border.

The coin, which was first introduced around AD 960, depicts Jesus holding a Bible on one side and the images of Basil II and Constantine VII, brothers who ruled the Byzantine Empire.

The "histamenon nomisma," or standard coin, has two inscriptions on it:

One in Latin that says, "Jesus Christ, King of those who reign," and one in Greek that says, "Basil and Constantine, emperors of the Romans."
