Shroud article

A set of remarkable pictures pertaining to the two coins placed on the Shroud’s eye image area have been published this month by Canadian numismatist Jean-Philip Fontanille. These pictures show the name of Tiberius Caesar in fragmentary form, and an auger wand at the center. These may easily be identified as Pilate coins issued AD 30 or 31. See picture collage in the section, Numismatic Evidence. Previous identification of the letters have been uncertain. This finding adds to the authenticity of the Shroud. Click here
