The Shekel’s Onion

Do scallions come from Ashkelon? Or is it only the other way around?

By tracing the old currency, by tracing the old current, we can follow its winding path through history. We can chase that ancient flow all the way down to its source.

But now Ashkelon has shifted. What was origin becomes destination.

The onion once traveled from the city, but now we find the city by way of the onion.
