The IAA said: “Now, after 2,000 years of exile, Israeli archaeologists arrive and excitedly reveal this ancient greeting from their ancestors.

“If you take a close look you’ll be able to see Jewish symbols on the coins, some of which were chosen to appear on our modern notes and coins.

“Can you see the harp, the vine and the palm tree on the coins?”

The Bar Kokhba revolt broke out in the Roman province of Judea in the first half of the second century AD.
