The meaning of life can be found in a coin.

I don't know why it took me so long to acquire an example of this most interesting type - a bronze coin celebrating the Roman victory in the Jewish War struck in the very region the conflict took place. Talk about a coin steeped in historyhttp://www.forumancientcoins.com/gallery/displayimage.php?pos=-158483

Of historical note: This coin likely was minted around the time of the siege of Masada in 73.
