A few weeks ago with Purim on the horizon, I went researching to find a coin from the time of Achashveirosh to let my kids handle.
It’s common knowledge that using multiple senses reinforces the message of something and holding a coin from Shushan would make it all the more real for them.
I did find two actually, and had them shipped from Cyprus, Greece but that process got my curiosity flowing…
Could I find Achashveirosh’s Palace on Google Maps?
A couple of minutes of online research brought me to modern-day Persia – aka Iran – and to Persepolis, the well- known to the locals, immaculately preserved palace of both Achasveiosh and Daryavesh, his successor.
