    Agrippa II (49/50 - 94/95 AD). Mint of Caesarea Maritima. AE (19mm, 6.13 gm, 12h). ΑΥΤ[ΟΚ ΤΙΤΟC KAIC CEBACT]OC (Emperor Titus Caesar Augustus); laureate, draped, and cuirassed bust of Titus to r. / EΤΟ ΙΘ ΒΑ ΑΓΡ ΙΠΠΑ (year 19 ,King Agrippa = 78/79 AD) above galley with oars sailing l. Hendin 1311. TJC 146. AJC II 253,18. RPC 2258. Very Fine.

    This coin and the two that follow it were likely struck to commemorate the voyage of Agrippa and his sister Berenice from Caesarea to Rome, where they hoped and expected that Titus would choose her as his wife. The Roman Senate harbored lingering, negative memories of the role of another oriental princess, Cleopatra VII, and did not permit the marriage. In the words of Suetonius (Titus, 7) "He [Titus] sent Queen Berenice away from Rome, which was painful for both of them."
