    Description

    Judaea, Herodian Kingdom. Agrippa I. 37-44 C.E. AE, (23 mm, 8.85 g, 1 h). Caesarea Maritima, Regnal year 7 (42/3 C.E.). Diademed head of Agrippa I right / Tyche of Caesarea standing left, holding rudder and palm branch; in right field, date (L Z). RPC 4985; TJC 122; Hendin 555. Fine NGC, repatinated, dark black-brown patina with earthen highlights. Extremely rare.

    This coin of Agrippa I from the city of Caesarea Maritima is notable, not only for the portrait of Agrippa as a diademed Roman client-king in defiance of Jewish custom, but for the early depiction of Caesarea's Tyche. This is the first appearance of the personification of the city. The reverse legend is also remarkable for giving the full title of the city as "Caesarea, which is near the Port of Sebaste."
