    Description

    Judaea, Marisa. Aulus Gabinius, Proconsul. 57-55 C.E. 20 mm (3.51 g). Year 3 (57/6 B.C.). Helmeted head of Athena(?) right / Serpent entwined within upright palm-branch. RPC I suppl. pp. 46-7; S. Qedar, "The Coins of Marisa: A New Mint," INJ 12 (1992/3), type C, pl. 7, C-1 (same dies); Rosenberger II p. 51, 30 (attributed to Gaza); J. Baramki, "Coins in the Archaeological Museum. III," QDAP 8 (1939), p. 78, 9, pl. XLI, 9 (attributed to Gaza); Hendin 874a. Nice VF, attractive green patina with contrasting earthen encrustation. Extremely rare and important. Qedar identifies the helmeted head on the obverse of this coin as a portrait of Gabinius. Burnett questions this identification, suggesting instead that it is Athena, which seems the more likely explanation as the figure has long, curly hair, wears a necklace and, possibly, also earrings.
