Abstract This new hoard, that we have studied after the archives of H. Seyrig, consists of 54 silver coins (staters and fractions) and of 3 silver fragments. Most of the coins (24) were minted in the Phoenician city of Byblos ; it contains also 8 Tyrian coins, 5 Sidonian, 1 Athenian, 1 Lycian and 5 uncertain fractions. This is the llth Byblian hoard and the 83th Phoenician hoard that we have already published. This hoard is especially helpful for our knowledge of the history of Byblos during the Persian period and for the corpus of its Persian period coinage that we are preparing, mainly because it provides absolute chronology for the series represented in it.
