ACKNOWLEDGMENTS

Many thanks to Alex Ben-Arieh, who graciously gave me permission to use images and text from his website,www.historama.com and to Christopher Eimer (, http://www.christophereimer.co.uk/) William Rosenblum, , www.rosenblumcoins.com and Dr. Busso Peus Nacht. (https://www.peus muenzen.de/) who also kindly permitted me to use several images from their websites, published books or auction catalog.

I greatly appreciate the expert advice Ms. Ellen Weiss provided in translating the Hebrew inscriptions,
Dr. Ralph Rosen, Professor, Department of Classical Studies, University of Pennsylvania, who so generously helped translate the several Latin inscriptions on the medals, and Ms. Veronica Wyller and Dr. Simon Richter, Professor of Germanic Languages and Literatures, University of Pennsylvania, who likewise were so unstinting in providing their expertise in translating the German inscriptions and for contributing toward the interpretations of the legends.

I also wish to thank the several friends who have been kind enough to read this article and provide me helpful feedback. In particular, these include Dr. G. Victor Rossi, Miriam Thompson, Ronald Sisk, Robert Newman, Fred Sisk, and Veronica Wyller.

I particularly thank my lovely wife, Joyce, who has read and re-read the various drafts of this treatise and has provided me not only with much needed encouragement but also has given me many extremely helpful suggestions and advice concerning the historical aspects of the period covered.
