The Syrian city Palmyra is said to have already been populated round about 7000 B.C. Back then the city was known as Tadmur which roughly means as Palm tree city. Its commercial zenith was in the 2nd and 3rd centuries. Around 270 A.D. Zenobia, the oasis city’s self-appointed queen, expanded her dominion and conquered Egypt. The Romans did not accept this because Egypt was their granary source of grain, therefore, they attacked Palmyra. Zenobia had to surrender. After another riot around 273 A.D. Rome was merciless and looted and destroyed Palmyra. The coin shows a Tetrapylon - a quodrinomial Roman monument of the city tectural masterpiece.
