    Description

    Judaea, Herodian Kingdom. Agrippa I. 37-44 C.E. AE 24 mm (14.38 g, 12 h). Caesarea Maritima, year 7 (A.D. 42/3). Facade of distyle temple; within two confronted figures holding bowls; between standing figure holding uncertain object and figure kneeling left, below. RPC 4983; TJC 121; Hendin 554. Fair/near Fine, rough coppery brown surfaces. Very rare and priced in Hendin from $2500 to $6000.

    This type seems to represent the worship of a cult statue, probably of the city Tyche with a marine deity below. Unfortunately, the type is never clear enough on surviving examples to be absolutely sure of what is being depicted.
