"Freedom Coins"

Faux News wrote:Trove of ancient 'freedom coins' unearthed in Jerusalem

A trove of bronze coins, the last remnants of an ancient Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire, have been discovered near the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

The coins were discovered by Hebrew University archaeologist Dr. Eilat Mazar during excavations below the Temple Mount’s southern Wall. The coins were left behind by people hiding in a large cave between 66 A.D. and 70 A.D. The tumultuous four-year period spanned the Roman siege of Jerusalem to the destruction of the Second Temple and the city.

“While several of the coins date to the early years of the revolt, the great majority are from its final year, otherwise known as, ‘Year Four’ (69-70 CE),” explained Hebrew University, in a statement. “Significantly, during the final year, the Hebrew inscription on the coins was changed from ‘For the Freedom of Zion’ to ‘For the Redemption of Zion,’ a shift which reflects the changing mood of the rebels during this period of horror and famine.”
[…]
The well-preserved coins are also decorated with Jewish symbols such as the four biblical plant species – palm, myrtle, citron and willow — as well as a picture of a goblet used in Temple services. Mazar believes that the coins are in such good condition because they were only in use for a short period of time.

Other discoveries at the site include broken pottery vessels, including jars and cooking pots, offering a fascinating glimpse into Jerusalem’s turbulent ancient history.

Are they sure they're coins? Maybe they were arcade tokens.

He picked at one
He licked the other
He went in circles
He dropped dead

One, three, five, six and seven clearly show the alien face huggers the reptilian jooz were planning to use to control the world...eventually.
