A hoard of silver tetradrachmas from the time of Ptolemais I and II (third century B.C.E.—Hellenistic period) were found in a juglet in excavation area B. The coins depict the king’s head on one side and, on the other side, an eagle holding lightning (the symbol of Zeus) with “King Ptolemais” written in Greek.
