Ancient coins of Judea

Ancient coins of Judea. Throughout history, pomegranate surfaces in documents, art and architecture. Ancient Greeks and Persians prized the fruit as symbol of life, regeneration and marriage; for Ancient Chinese its seeds stood for longevity and immortality and Jews used it in many contexts both cultural and religious. Later on it became an image of resurrection and life for Christians, being simultaneously one of the three blessed fruits of Buddhism.
