ABSTRACT
The article reports on the four types of Phoenician beads. One is the intrusion, a bead in a place where it does not belong which confuses archaeologists and bead collectors. Another type is called Phoenician because of misidentification of the place where the beads are manufactured. The third type of bead is misascribed and can be called rumor or hearsay bead. The fourth type of beads prove beyond doubt that the ancient Phoenicians were clever to make a large number of fake beads.
