    Description

    Agrippa II (49/50 - 94/95 AD). Mint of Tiberias. AE (18.5mm, 5.66 gm, 12h). BA ΑΓΡΙΠΑ ΝΙΚ CEB (King Agrippa, victory of Augustus); ET IE (year 15 = 69/70 AD) across fields; palm branch upright / TIBE PIAC within a wreath. Hendin 1280. TJC 134. RPC 2242. Very Rare. Extremely Fine.

    It has also been suggested that this coin might have been struck according to an era beginning in 60 AD, and thus dating to 74/75. In the first case, the coin would have been struck just after the Jewish War ended, and, in the second case, it would have been struck in the year after the absolute end of the war when Masada fell in 73 AD. In either case, the iconography, reflecting both the coins of Herod Antipas and the pre-royal issues of Agrippa II struck in Tiberias, suggests that this is a reference to the victory of Agrippa II's Roman allies in the Jewish War.
